Our partnership.

As a global company, 2U has a responsibility to transform lives through education and social good. The International Rescue Committee’s mission is to help people whose lives have been uprooted by conflict and disaster to gain control of their future. Consider us inspired.

Through our partnership, we’re providing IRC employees with more than $1M worth of scholarships to select graduate programs and short courses, offering more educational opportunities for those helping people affected by crisis.
