Global Learning Travel Grants

The Institute for Global Engagement (IGE) offers two grants of $2000 each on an annual basis to faculty who are engaged in leading Global Learning programs.*

Faculty may apply for this annual grant for the following purposes:

  1. To fund a site visit for a new Global Learning program in another country. Faculty may use the funds to pay for their own travel expenses or share the funds with a second GL program leader. The funds must be used to visit a confirmed destination and to plan the logistics for a proposed GL program. The proposed site visit cannot take place during a GL program. The site visit can take place before a new GL course has been approved by ACC.
  2. To fund a site visit for an on-going GL program in another country. Faculty may use the funds to pay for their own travel expenses or share the funds with a second GL program leader. The funds must be used to develop new content and contacts at that site or assess program sustainability at that site.

Applications

Deadline: Applications are due by 4 p.m. on January 12, 2018 for site visits planned for anytime during the following 18 months.

Please address the following criteria in your application:

  • Proposed Global Learning course and potential student audience
  • Travel grant objectives
  • Travel grant itinerary
  • Proposed budget for how the $2000 will be spent

ISCC will review the applications and make a recommendation to the Education Abroad Director, who will inform the successful applicant of the award. Upon completion of a travel grant, participants will be required to provide a post-trip report / presentation describing the outcome of the trip and how it relates to future Global Learning course plans.
