The International Academy of Educational Services (IAES) is a not for profit organisation that has been operating internationally since 1952.  Due to popular demand for expansion, the IAES Council and Committee agreed for it to also expand into the United Kingdom, following consultations with members between 1974 and 2006.  The Council then approved for the IAES to be also registered in England and Wales, as a not for profit company limited by guarantee, with charitable intents. 

 

Therefore, the IAES is also registered in England and Wales, with Compnay Number 6427549 .  The IAES is not for profit organisation with cahritable intent.  Its main aim is to promote excellence in education and research internationally.

 

 

THE IAES LEGAL DOCUMENTS

 

 

1.  THE POLICIES, RULES AND PROCEDURES

 

IAES concerns itself with promoting quality research and educational activities worldwide. The Academy recognises the importance of each individual in contributing to effective research and innovation in various subjects. This diversity of professional interests are reflected in the selection of projects for peer review and award.

 

The Academy welcomes various projects and studies from eligible individual on any advertised award from any part of world. The Academy also provides funds for short term educational projects including study grants leading to various academic qualifications and higher degree programmes.

 

General Rules and Procedures

 

  • All applications submitted to the Academy are independently peer reviewed. The review process is blinded so that the identities of both the reviewers and applicants are kept very confidential. Specific instructions on the application process are provided with each call for proposal.
  • As the main objective of the Academy is to promote research and education to eligible candidates who have the potential of becoming leading academics and researchers in their fields, any individual from any institution in the world or an independent researcher who wish to enter into academic work are eligible to apply for awards.
  • All grant recipients for any of the Academy's awards or funds are referred to as Fellows in the contract of Awards, as they would remain Fellows of the Academy throughout the duration of the awards.
  • As the grants awarded to Fellows are for their sole benefits in enriching their research and educational activities, all fellows are also refereed to as beneficiaries of the awards.
  • The Fellows of the academy are required to provide honest reports on the state on their awards in their various institutions
  • All queries arising from IAES grants and awards are first discussed in the appropriate Committee. Depending on the nature of the enquiry, it would be referred to either the Policy or Quality Department or the Legal Department to deal.
  • Payments of grants and awards can be on the production of invoices from the host institutions or from grants recipients usually referred to as Fellows, but with institutions for payment to be made to the host institution, where the grant is administered. Payments therefore are made on the Institution name, not on the individual's name.
  • Only items with full cost within the budget of each grant can be paid for. Over charging of items by institutions can lead to delay in payments. Grants recipients are expected to complete their projects at the agreed times. However, extensions can be granted in exceptional cases. In this circumstance, each case is treated on individual basis.

 

Panel of Assessors / Reviewers

 

IAES has full international Panel of Assessors who help in the review and advice of the submitted grant and award applications. Appointment of Assessors and Reviewers are subject to individuals meeting set criteria, and depending on their qualifications, experience and standing in their chosen subjects.

 

Payment and Remuneration


In the meantime, there is no payment reward for Board and Committee members as a board or committee members. However, as a board or committee member, you will be achieving some academic benefits and knowledge, which would extend as your membership progress. You will achieve potential publicity and enhance your opportunity for international recognition and promotion in the workplace.

 

Expenses and Costs

 

All Board and Committee Members are entitled to payment of expenses for attending committee meetings and duties, both your country of residence or outside your country of residence. These include travel, accommodation, food and subsistence costs.
