International Education Administrator Awards


The International Education Administrator (IEA) Program was founded to provide American international educators with a more in-depth experience with and knowledge of Korean education. Each year four American international educators are selected for a two-week intensive academic exploration of Korea, preceded by attendance at NAFSA where they meet their Korean IEA counterparts.


The Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES), which is located in Washington, D.C., currently handles applications from American international education administrators who are interested in the program. CIES publishes an awards brochure each year which provides relevant details on the Fulbright awards available in Korea and other countries. Anyone interested in applying for the IEA program should contact CIES for further information and application forms. 

KAEC does not accept applications from Americans directly. Full applications are available from IIE ( and CIES (, depending on award category.
