The International Center (UKIC) maintains a fund to support faculty international travel for the purposes of establishing a UK faculty-directed education abroad program. Grants may be awarded for either a course that embeds an international education travel component into a fall or spring residential course or a program to be offered during the summer or winter intersessions. The proposal must relate to a new program that will be offered within two years of receipt of funding. Applicants must be eligible to receive at least 25% matching funds (e.g., cash or in-kind contributions) from their college/department or external funding sources and are strongly encouraged to seek additional funding sources.
More information on the grant and submission process can be found in the documents below.
