A growing number of Iranian students are being suspended or expelled due to widespread protests across Iranian universities since September 2022. The ICOIA is working to identify and link suspended and expelled students with volunteer Iranian academics around the world to work on joint education and/or research projects. This will empower the students and provide them with unique and valuable international education and research experience. If you are a student that has been suspended or expelled from your university program, please get in touch.
ICOIA aims to consolidate and provide an updated database of all special opportunities and exemptions offered to Iranian international student applicants, such as admission fee waivers, special scholarships, or transcript requirement exemptions.
We invite all academics to share the opportunities with us in their university and/or encourage and liaise with their university to offer help.
ICOIA aims to collate the information and available programs for students and scholars at risks around the world. Please contact us if you are aware of such opportunities.
Many university students have been harshly targeted by the Islamic Republic’s officials and university administrators. ICOIA intends to foster human rights conditions in Iran’s universities by monitoring, reporting, and collecting evidence of such violations. We invite students, faculty, and staff to submit any case of human rights violations along with the proper documentation through our website.
Based on these reports, ICOIA releases a list of academic oppressors who have actively engaged in suppression and undermining academic freedom, freedom of speech, and freedom of assembly.
Dear whistleblowers, if you have critical information that can help us in our mission to shine the light on the atrocities and breaches of the human rights in universities, you can anonymously and securely email us at email@example.com
