The AIAE was organized by a group of Italian American teachers and professors to enhance the Italian American image and presence in academia.
The AIAE promotes discussion of educational issues impacting Italian Americans; supports formal and pertinent education; facilitates professional development for teachers; sponsors the Programma Ponte Scholarship Program (a course of study in Rome on Contemporary Italy, designed for Italian American college and high school students); and recognizes, and presents awards to, outstanding Italian American educators and leaders of the community for their achievements in their professions.
The AIAE is a not-for-profit organization with 501 (C) (3) status.
Donations to AIAE are tax-deductible.
