Thanks to a grant from the U.S. Department of State’s Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), five U.S. universities will have the opportunity to incorporate Vietnam into their internationalization strategies and develop partnerships with counterparts in Vietnam in the coming academic year – with the assistance of the Institute of International Education (IIE).
The International Academic Partnership Program (IAPP) grant includes a November 2013 visit for high-level delegations from each of the five institutions to three cities in Vietnam – presumably Hanoi, Danang and Ho Chi Minh City – to meet with potential partners, U.S. Mission officials, representatives from the Vietnamese Ministry of Higher Education (read Ministry of Education and Training), and other education-related organizations, according to IIE’s press release.
