  • IIE American Passeport Project

    Through the IIE American Passport Project, IIE will make grants to U.S. colleges and universities in the IIENetwork starting in spring 2021, so they can help students who are eligible for Pell grants obtain a U.S. passport. Eligibility will be limited to first-year students to ensure that the students have ample time remaining in their college careers and receive help from their advisors to map out a study abroad plan. In this first year, IIE will provide grants to up to 40 U.S.-based IIENetwork member universities and colleges to cover the costs of approximately 25 passports for Pell-eligible U.S. freshmen.

    IIE will select a diverse group of U.S.-based IIENetwork member universities and colleges – including community colleges, HBCUs, MSIs, liberal arts colleges, and universities – with a demonstrated commitment to diversifying study abroad. Award recipients will be chosen by a competitive selection process, and selected institutions will submit nominated students for IIE’s review and approval. IIE will make grant payments to selected institutions that will be responsible for dispersing funds to students.

    The institutional application will open in late February 2021. Members can contact to ensure they are eligible for the award.

  • UVED has just set up a Moodle platform

    The Virtual University of Environment and Sustainable Development (UVED) has just set up a Moodle platform. The purpose of this platform is to enable institutions to benefit from services, to retrieve the contents of the UVED MOOCs, to integrate them more easily into their own platform, to facilitate their reappropriation by teachers and thus to develop uses within the framework of initial training activities. It also means enabling teachers to have access to quality educational content to train themselves and their students.
    All the UVED thematic trails (videos that make up the MOOCs produced and coordinated by UVED) have been integrated into this platform, as well as 2 transversal trails. There are currently 23 training programmes distributed as follows: 19 courses in French, 2 in English and 2 transversal courses.
