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 2018-2019 is now open! Please see below for all application requirements and materials. Applications are due to Department Chairs/Program Directors/Supervisors by March 28, 2018. Applications are then due with all appropriate approvals to Academic Affairs by April 2, 2018. Awards will be confirmed by May 1, 2018.
