Institute for International Education Holds 2019 Gala
31 October 2019

On Wednesday, October 30, the Institute for International Education (IIE) held its annual gala in New York City. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) provided support and SNF staff attended the event.

A landmark $1.25 million grant from SNF in 2016 launched IIE’s Greek Diaspora Fellowship Program, which offers Greek- and Cypriot-born scholars the opportunity to return from institutions abroad to spend time collaborating with colleagues at Greek universities. Collaborative projects include research, curriculum development, and mentoring of graduate students.

Founded over a hundred years ago, IIE seeks to foster exchange of education—and thereby ideas and understanding—across borders. SNF has provided repeated support to IIE since 2001 and was honored with the organization’s Humanitarian Award for International Cooperation at the 2018 gala.
