International Education Standards Council Fellow Application

Would you like an opportunity to grow your professional network, engage in deep discussions about credential evaluation? Beyond those benefits, you will increase your knowledge and skill sets and gain an opportunity to present at a professional conference and publish your findings in a global database and other widely distributed works.

AACRAO is soliciting applicants for the 2024/25 AACRAO IESC Fellowship from the field of talented professionals who want to become more successful in and contribute to the field of international credential evaluation. Fellows will gain valuable insight and learn best practices from professionals with decades of experience. The knowledge gained with this Fellowship will be instantly applicable when setting and implementing standards within your office and will empower you to establish procedures with confidence for you and your colleagues.

The AACRAO International Education Standards Council (IESC) is a volunteer assembly of experienced professionals in international admissions and credential evaluations. In response to changes in global education systems, research projects are delegated to IESC members and findings are presented to the group for further debate with an ultimate goal of forming placement recommendations for inclusion in the Credential Advice or broader guidelines found in AACRAO EDGE, the Electronic Database for Global Education. Every year, a substantive research topic is identified as a subject for two Fellows to work on.

Ideal applicants will be fairly new to the field and looking for ways to grow in their profession.

  • Fellows are expected to participate in twice monthly hour-long conference calls.
  • Applications are open to individuals employed by AACRAO Member institutions.
  • The Fellowship will last no longer than one year, to maximize the number of individuals who will benefit from this opportunity. There will be no more than two Fellows each year.
  • Fellows will be tasked with specific research projects to be considered for inclusion within AACRAO EDGE.
  • Preference may be given to those with less than 5 years of international credential evaluation experience.
  • Fellows selected are invited to join the International Publication Advisory Committee (IPAC), which provides additional opportunities for professional collaboration and publication, once their term ends and their research is completed.
