International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP)

  • The Office of International Education and the College of Education and Communications hosts teaching Fellows through the Fulbright Distinguished Awards in Teaching Program for International Teachers.

    Funded by the US Department of State and administered by IREX, this is the fourth year that IUP will serve as host. Previously known as International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP), IUP is proud to now host the Fellows through Fulbright Scholarship. This program offers these talented educators an enriching cultural exchange. Fellows audit graduate and undergraduate courses, participate in field excursions to public elementary and secondary schools in Indiana and Pittsburgh, and engage in Inquiry Projects that will help to improve education in their home countries.
