Grant Proposal and Application Competition 2020
2020 Faculty-led International Travel Grant Proposal Competition will go live on Monday, January 28th, 2019.
We encourage ISU Faculty interested in course-based short-term abroad experience for their students' to be prepared to apply. Proposals will be reviewed and approved by the Faculty-Led Committee. This Committee will evaluate the proposal based on certain criteria such as how well the proposal clearly outlines the course, program logistics, and risk management, as well as how well the proposal articulates the faculty experience as it relates to the proposed international location. The responsibility of the Faculty-Led Committee is to grant funding to programs that promote strong course-based articulation and demonstrate student international engagement.
Indiana State University’s Strategic Plan calls for doubling the percentage of Indiana State University students who participate in an international experience by year 2020.
To achieve this goal, funds have been made available to support faculty and their students in short-term faculty-led study abroad programs. By providing opportunities for brief, faculty-led international experiences, ISU hopes to encourage undergraduate students to consider studying abroad for longer periods such as a semester, academic year, or summer. Requests for faculty proposals will be announced every year for a spring competition for travel during the following calendar year. In future years, additional competitions may be announced depending on funding availability. Successful programs are expected to benefit students and contribute to the achievement of the University Strategic Plan.
