Faculty Opportunities

International Faculty Development Grant

The Center for International Education, with generous support from the Office of the Provost, has funding available each year for select full-time faculty members to participate in an International Faculty Development Seminar during the summer.

The International Faculty Development Seminars are organized and arranged through the Council of International Educational Exchange and take place in late May, June or July. The seminars are offered in more than 20 countries and each has a unique academic topic and theme. For more information, please review a full list of International Faculty Development Seminars.

Each grant is worth up to $5,000 and covers seminar fees, accommodations, flights, meals (typically two per day), medical insurance and visas (not included: additional meals, seminar deviations and personal expenses).

A three-person committee comprised of the provost, associate provost for research and the director of the Center for International Education evaluate the applications and notify recipients by mid-February.

Preference is given to applicants who are exploring research interests in an area of the world where they have little or no previous experience. Upon return, it is expected that recipients integrate their new cultural insight into new or existing course offerings or into the development of a faculty-led program.

For additional information about the International Faculty Development Seminar, please contact Shannon Harrison, Center for International Education Director, at
