Program Development and Activities Grants



Proposing a study abroad program

Faculty or staff wishing to propose a new study abroad program should contact Erin French, Director of International Programs, for more information. 

Site development

Grants for initial site visits are available through the College of Human Sciences International Programs Committee. These grants provide financial assistance to faculty or staff interested in developing new group study abroad programs that require an exploratory visit to the site. Grants will be awarded only where there is strong probability of student interest making the program viable. Applicants will need to document evidence of this interest.

The college’s International Programs Committee will competitively award up to four grants of up to $3,000-$4,000 each for qualifying proposals. Contact Erin French, Director of International Programs, for more information.

Proposing international activities

The College of Human Sciences International Programs Committee calls for proposals twice each year for financial support of programs and activities that enrich the international dimension of Human Sciences. Requests are accepted from AESHM, HDFS, and FSHN departments, committees, faculty, extension field staff, students, and international Human Sciences professionals.

The number and amount of the awards varies depending on the number of requests and the amount of money available for awards each year.

Proposal deadlines are April 5 and October 5. Refer to the Guidelines for Proposal Related to International Activities (doc) document for details.
