Study abroad program development funding is now available to S&T faculty. Missouri S&T has joined the Institute for International Education’s “Generation Study Abroad” Initiative, and is committed to doubling the number of S&T students who receive academic credit as part of a study abroad program. To help reach this goal, faculty members are invited to submit a proposal for funding to assist in designing a new study abroad course or program to be offered to S&T students. Grants in the amount of $5,000 each are available to help offset the costs associated with the development of such a program, and will be made available to faculty as a one-time transfer of funds. Four grants will be awarded this year. The deadline to submit applications is Sunday, Nov. 15.

Faculty members from any academic department are eligible to submit a proposal for funding. Funds may be used for the development work necessary to launch a new program, and for travel to a foreign destination to identify housing, activities and other opportunities for students who will participate in the new program. To be eligible for funding, program proposals must include at least one academic course worth a minimum of three credit hours and should be at least 14 days long to allow students to fulfill a key requirement for the global studies minor. Many study abroad programs will also meet the new experiential learning requirement for undergraduate students.

See more information and apply online. For more information, contact Dr. Jeanie Hofer, assistant vice chancellor of international and cultural affairs.
