International Travel Grant

The Office of International Affairs (OIA) is pleased to announce the International Travel Grant for Teachers College students engaging in academic activities abroad. Funded by OIA, this grant is intended to support travel-related expenses for conducting research, fulfilling internships, presenting at conferences, or participating in other academic activities outside of the United States.

Through this initiative, OIA will award up to four grants of $500 each for the Fall 2019 academic semester. Applications will be accepted for future travel only. Applications for travel completed before the award notification date are not eligible. Eligible expenses include, but are not limited to, transportation, accommodation, conference registration fees, and supplies for research.

Award recipients will be required to submit a summary report of their research or other activities following completion of their trip. OIA may publish some reports on the OIA website or invite award recipients to present their work at a student forum. Additional guidelines for this report can be found on page 2 of the announcement page.
