Grants for faculty-led study abroad program

Missouri S&T has joined the Institute for International Education’s ‘Generation Study Abroad’ Initiative, and committed to doubling the number of S&T students who receive academic credit as part of a study abroad program. To help reach this goal, faculty members are invited to submit a proposal for funding to assist them in the design of a new study abroad course/program to be offered to S&T students.  Grants in the amount of $5,000 each are available to help defray the costs associated with the development of such a program and will be made available to faculty as a one-time transfer of funds.

More information

If you have any questions please contact Dr. Jeanie Hofer, Assistant Vice Chancellor, International and Cultural Affairs.

Faculty members from any academic department are eligible to submit a proposal for funding. Funds may be used for the curriculum development work necessary to launch a new program, and for travel to a foreign destination to identify housing, activities, and other opportunities for students who will participate in the new program. To be eligible for funding, program proposals must include at least one academic course worth a minimum of 3 credit hours and should be at least 14 days in length to allow S&T students to fulfill a key requirement for the Global Studies Minor. Many study abroad programs will also meet the new experiential learning requirement for undergraduate students.
