Advocate of the Year
The nomination period for the 2021 award has closed. Stay tuned for our announcement at Advocacy Day!
Speak out for students, scholars, and policies that matter to you! Educate Congress on how international education impacts your state and district and why we need a more globally engaged and welcoming United States.
Protect International Education
Urge Congress to Direct Covid-19 Resources to Support International Education
International enrollment and study abroad programs have been brought to a standstill by the coronavirus pandemic and the global response to it. Help make the case that funding, federal oversight, and policy changes are needed to support and sustain our field.
Urge Congress to Fund International Education in a COVID-19 Relief Bill
Congress is expected to consider an additional COVID stimulus package, and as underscored by Fall 2020 survey results showing the staggering cost of the pandemic to the field, financial assistance is critical. Urge your lawmaker to fund international education in the next COVID relief bill.
Educate Congress on the Value of International Students
Email and tweet at your Senators and Representative about the dollars, jobs, academic and cultural benefits international students bring to your state. Share your stories about the positive impact international students have on our communities. Use our advocacy toolkit to request your member of Congress make a public floor statement in support of international students.
