About Us


The Foundation for International Education and Training (FIET) is a 501c(3) public non-profit organization in the United States, with a mission to promote international education and training. Originally started as charity efforts of Stanley Prep, an international education provider, FIET has expanded its roles and training programs to serve foreign government officials, trainees, and interns; and to provide valuable services to disadvantaged populations all around the globe.


Welcome to the Foundation for International Education and Training. As the President and founder of FIET I believe that education is a vital aspect of empowering communities around the world. Our vision of promoting accessible education to those in need is reflected in all that we do. I have spent the past several years developing programs that are designed around this core principle, from providing scholarships to overseas students and hosting training programs for government employees, to building schools for communities in need. No matter the project, it is our goal to make accessible education a reality in every corner of the world. I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learn about the work that we do at FIET. Whether you are interested in benefiting from the variety of services we offer, or eager to get involved with our charitable efforts, we look forward to having you join us.

FIET provides scholarships to high-performing students from underserved communities to broaden their perspective through study abroad opportunities. FIET also financially supports the charitable construction of schools in small villages of underdeveloped countries.

FIET’s intention is to give back to the community. FIET and our primary donor, Stanley Prep, believe in equal access to education for all students around the world. We have expertise in international education and training and we aim to first offer it to those in underserved communities.
