The Wien International Scholarship Program (WISP) at Brandeis University, established in 1958, is a first-of-its kind bringing students from every corner of the globe to campus and engaging the entire community to be active global citizens. The vision and generosity of its namesake, Lawrence A. and Mae L. Wien, and the entire Wien family, continues to be illustrated in the dedicated students and alumni who serve as leaders on campus and throughout the world in the areas of science, the arts, politics, business, and the humanities.

Wien Scholars are identified not only by their academic achievement, but for their contributions inside and outside of the classroom prior to, during, and after their years at Brandeis.  Since its inception, the Wien International Scholarship Program has brought over 894 scholars from 115 countries to Brandeis, and its graduates continue to be committed to Brandeis University and to improving the world.
