Fulbright’s International Education Administrators (IEA) Program

Fulbright’s International Education Administrators (IEA) Program is designed specifically for U.S. higher education professionals.

The IEA Program currently offers intensive two-week seminars in six countries: France, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, and Russia. Seminars include campus visits with a cross-section of universities and colleges; briefings with faculty and administrators, government officials, and leading educational experts; and tours of historical and cultural sites. Participants return to their home institutions with an enhanced ability to build partnerships, encourage study abroad participation, and support international students.

Fulbright is currently accepting applications for October 2016 seminars in France and Germany.
