ECE Aid

ECE® Aid is a charitable initiative developed by Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. to provide fee waivers for educational credential reports for vulnerable populations. While the ECE® Aid program initially launched with the intention of opening the door to education for refugees and asylum seekers, the scope has expanded to include those with temporary protected status, special immigrant status, and those affected by natural disasters or extreme hardship. ECE selects experienced, trusted agencies and institutions to distribute fee waiver vouchers to qualifying immigrants. ECE does not provide complimentary reports directly to individuals. ECE® Aid recipients receive the same trusted, high-quality, evaluation reports and customer service both students and higher education institutions have come to expect from ECE.

Hamburg, Germany - A Preliminary Case Study of Refugees in Towns

Unlike our other case studies, this project in Hamburg, Germany focused dominantly on one domain of integration - housing - and was not conducted by a localized researcher. We feel the findings are nonetheless important and compelling, revealing critical good practices and challenges with refugee integration. Additionally, a localized perspective was achieved through the depth of the connection to Hamburg by MIT's International Service and Technology Initiative.

This work is a case study of the Refugees in Towns (RIT) Project of the Feinstein International Center (FIC) at the Tufts University Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy.
