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 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 evidence of student learning and meeting program goals and learning outcomes, and impact on the UW-Eau Claire community. The receipt of funding one year does not guarantee additional funding in future years.
