During the spring semester, academic and administrative faculty will be invited to submit proposals for up to $3,000 in funding for projects that will enhance and promote the development of curricula, programs, research, and other creative efforts that have a significant international dimension. The grant program gives special consideration to proposals that produce meaningful results that contribute to the international strengths of the university. Proposals are reviewed by the International Activities Committee, and recommendations for funding are made by April each year. The award is funded by the Office of the Provost.
Travel grants covering expenses for research and scholarship are overseen by the Office of Research and Innovation.

A call for proposals is made in the spring -semester each year, with proposals reviewed by a committee and notifications of funding announced in late April to early May.
