International Programs & Exchanges
International Programs and Exchanges in the Office of Global Affairs annually facilitates approximately 100 faculty-led study abroad programs that connect students, faculty and staff to a range of host countries and cultures through academic study, experiential learning, and on-site engagement. These programs provide a unique opportunity for in-depth academic coursework that integrates the resources of an international program site with a student’s focus of study.
At this time, we invite faculty to apply for support for programs taking place between Early Fall 2014 and Summer 2015. We will also accept applications from new Summer 2014 programs. Grants will be awarded in amounts of up to $7,500 to support specific aspects of academic activities associated with faculty-led programs.
Please note that Faculty-led Study Abroad Program award parameters have changed for 2014-15.
Grants will be given to support:
- Programs that combine the faculty program director’s academic research expertise and local area knowledge with opportunities for student experiential learning;
- Quarter-long programs, especially those offered during Winter quarter;
- Programs that involve subjects or locations less commonly represented in study abroad.
To be eligible for funding, programs must include at least four weeks of study at the international program site.
Faculty-led program grant applications should clearly articulate:
- The program director’s academic goals for the program. How does the program leverage the faculty member’s research expertise together with knowledge of the field site to enhance student learning?
- How student learning outcomes will be assessed.
- How the program furthers the mission of the department and aligns with departmental and college research priorities.
Deadline: April 11, 2014
