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 the 2019-2020 academic year. The next application deadline is October 24, 2019 to submit your materials to your Department Chair, Program Director, or Supervisor and October 31, 2019 to Academic Affairs (targeting Summer 2020 projects and later). All proposals will be reviewed after December 15, 2019. 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.
