We are the Institute for East African Councils on Higher Education
The IEA Councils is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit specializing in college access for immigrant, as well as first-generation immigrant students of East African heritage.
As strong advocates of higher educational access and persistence, IEA Councils engages targeted student communities by delegating appropriate representatives to ensure proper guidance, support and resources. The importance of education at IEA Councils is exemplified by the culturally personalized assistance we provide to ensure that East-African communities residing in the United States cultivate their full potential.
