Faculty-Led International Immersion Experiences (FLIIE) Information for Faculty/Staff

This program is made possible by a Blugold Commitment Grant. 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 2017-2019 is now open! One-year grants are available for new programs, and two-year grants are now available for programs that have already run one or more times with FLIIE funding. You can find all program requirements and application materials below. Proposals are due January 27, 2017 to your Department Chair, Program Director, or Supervisor. Final proposals with all approvals are due to Academic Affairs by February 3, 2017.

Eligibility

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.
