Faculty Development Grants
Each year, two $2500 Faculty Development Grants will be available to faculty interested in developing a course that involves a study abroad experience. There are two formats for such courses, and one of these $2500 grants will be awarded for each type of study abroad course:
Spring Semester "Break Away" course : a course that meets on-campus during the entire spring semester and includes an obligatory, integrated study abroad trip during the Spring Break for ALL students enrolled in the course.
Summer Session courses: A course that occurs abroad during 1-6 weeks of the summer May-July
Faculty Development Grants will be announced each year in December and have an application deadline of February 1st. Awardees will be funded for exploratory travel that MUST be accomplished by the end of the current fiscal year, June 30th.
