International Fellows Program

Research, Service and Creative Activity

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 for the 2021-2022 academic year is not yet open. The next application deadline is tentatively scheduled for February 7, 2021 to submit your materials to your Department Chair, Program Director, or Supervisor and February 14, 2021 to the Immersions Office (targeting Winterim 2022 projects and later). All proposals will be reviewed after February 14, 2021. Click here for more information about applying.

Goals of the International Fellows Program (IFP)
  • To actualize the Centennial Plan's commitment to accelerate global learning, 
  • To support the Centennial Plan's commitment to transformational learning, and
  • 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.
