This program is made possible by a Blugold Commitment Grant funded for 2013-2016. The goal of the program is to encourage and support faculty-led international immersion experiences for undergraduate UW-Eau Claire students by providing funds to defray student costs and, thus, increase possibilities and opportunities for participation. Programs may focus on issues, themes or locations with geographical, cultural or historical significance, current events or issues of importance to the people of the places traveled.
The FLIIE application cycle for Fiscal Year 2015-2016 is now closed. However, interested faculty/staff can review the program requirements and application materials below. Proposals for Fiscal Year 2016-2017 will be due in January 2016.

*FLIIE Budget Example
The FLIIE program is open to current UW-Eau Claire faculty and academic staff with 0.50 FTE or greater appointments. New applicants are highly encouraged, but must demonstrate sufficient knowledge of the country and culture, and feasibility of the program. Repeat applicants must demonstrate past program achievements, such as student learning, met program goals and learning outcomes, and impact on the UW-Eau Claire community. The receipt of funding one year does not guarantee funding in future years. Interested faculty and academic staff are encouraged to apply for other Blugold Commitment-funded immersion programs; however, each program proposal should be unique and date and time conflicts across the programs must be avoided.
