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
  • Accommodation
  • 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, cbwatts@vt.edu.
