IIE Emergency Fellowship


The Emergency Student Fund (ESF) of the Institute of International Education (IIE) is issuing a call for nominations from United States colleges and universities who have Nepali students on campus with urgent financial need due to the devastating earthquake in Nepal.

IIE’s Nepal-ESF will provide emergency grants of up to $2,000 to Nepali students nominated by their U.S. host colleges and universities who are unable to continue or complete their degree program in the U.S. due to serious financial difficulties precipitated by the natural disaster in their home country.

Accredited U. S. campuses are invited to nominate up to 5% or 3 (whichever is greater) of the Nepali students at their institutions for whom help is needed to continue their studies in the United States. Funds could be used for educational expenses over the summer or for the fall semester 2015. IIE expects U.S. institutions nominating Nepali students to help address the students’ urgent financial needs through tuition waivers, scholarships, and other forms of assistance.
