The Missouri S&T Study Abroad Advisory Committee awarded $25,000 in grant funds to assist in developing faculty-led short-term study abroad programs. The committee considered seven proposals and six faculty members were selected to receive funding. This funding will be used for travel or other costs associated with developing a faculty-led study abroad program. Below are the selected faculty members, along with their proposed courses and program locations.
Grants of $5,000 were awarded for the following programs:
Congratulations to the award recipients. The committee wishes to express its gratitude to Dr. Stephen Roberts, Dr. Richard Brow, and Dr. Warren K. Wray, who funded the grants and is appreciative of all faculty members who submitted proposals. These strategic investments are geared to extend the global opportunities for Missouri S&T students and provide a more competitive advantage to students interested in global career opportunities and global experiences.
In May 2015, Chancellor Schrader signed a commitment to join IIE’s Generation Study Abroad initiative to double the number of students who study abroad by the year 2020. The development of faculty-led short-term programs is one way Missouri S&T is expanding study abroad opportunities for our students. Faculty-led short-term study abroad programs are usually two or three weeks long and offer students the opportunity to earn Missouri S&T credit while experiencing new cultures.
