2019 Faculty Grant Awards

The Study Abroad Office would like to congratulate our faculty who won awards for our Faculty Development Travel Grants. The grants were developed to help faculty secure funds to visit potential locations for future study abroad and away programs. 

Faculty had to submit a proposal highlighting the location, proposed activities, possible course associated with the location and a list of potential learning outcomes that could be achieved in that location. Proposal involving a "new" location and/or new discipline in that location were given priority, as well as potential programs that would involve the most number of students. We look forward to developing these programs with the faculty.

Study Abroad to Ethiopia
