Apply for international site visit grants
From: The Global Education Office
The Global Education Office (GEO) will provide funding for one faculty member to join a GEO representative on a site visit to a partner university.
One grant award is available each semester.
The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to individual faculty interested in strengthening partnership activities with a current Virginia Tech exchange partner through joint research, student programming, and other collaborations aimed at increasing student participation in the partnership. The proposed site visit should be strategically framed within a college or department’s established plan for internationalization.
Funding will include the following:
- Economy class airfare
- Meals and Incidental Expenses (M&IE) Per Diem
- CISI Insurance
A committee will review the proposals and make funding decisions.
Full-time faculty members and administrative faculty/staff are eligible to apply. Applications in all curricular and academic specializations are eligible.
Proposals are due by 5 p.m. on Feb. 1, for the first application period (February-June 2018 travel), or 5 p.m. on April 1, for the second application period (July-December 2018 travel).
Submit proposals to Chelsey Watts, firstname.lastname@example.org.
