International Fellows Program (IFP)

The International Fellows Program for Research, Service, and Creative Activity is made possible by a multi-year Blugold Commitment Grant. It is an innovative program coordinated by the Intercultural Immersion Coordinator, in collaboration with the Center for International Education (CIE), the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) and the Center for Service-Learning (CS-L). The International Fellows Program capitalizes on the strength and success of high impact academic experiences and is dedicated to supporting international student-faculty collaborative research/creative activity and research service-learning (i.e. field research conducted in conjunction with a service-learning experience).

The International Fellows Program is accepting applications for 2018-2019. The next application deadline is February 2, 2018 (targeting Summer 2018 or Winterim 2019 projects), and all proposals will be reviewed after that date. Click here for more information about applying.

Goals of the International Fellows Program (IFP)

  1. To actualize the Centennial Plan's commitment to accelerate global learning, 
  2. To support the Centennial Plan's commitment to transformational learning, and
  3. To fulfill an unmet student and faculty need for financial support to conduct international research and creative activities.  

In addition, one hope is that some funded projects might grow into longer-term, self-sustaining international relationships or study abroad programs.
