Historical NoteReturn to Top

"Founded in 1945, the American Council for Emigres in the Professions (ACEP) was a service organization aiding professional émigrés in all aspects of resettlement. The ACEP was formerly the American Committee for Refugee Scholars, Writers and Artists. In 1963, it absorbed the National Committee for Resettlement of Foreign Physicians.

The ACEP provided counseling, English tutoring, evaluation and interpretation of foreign credentials, and job retraining and placement as well as specialized help such as studios for music practice, art exhibitions, and radio broadcasts."
