International Education Week Call for Proposals

International Education Week is a national joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education. Part of the effort of this celebration is to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.

At Appalachian State University, International Education Week (IEW) is a celebration of the global engagement that happens throughout the year through our clubs, courses, and conversations. Students, staff, faculty, and community members are encouraged to participate in programming throughout the week of November 13-17, 2023 by submitting programming ideas and attending events hosted on campus. 

You can Submit your programming ideas here!
Deadline for submission: October 17th

The Office of Nationally Competitive Scholarships will be hosting events throughout the week to participate in International Education Week including a presentation on global scholarships at the Global Symposium on Wednesday November 15th. More information on scheduled events will be posted in October.
