International Travel Grant

We are now accepting applications for Spring 2020. Apply here.

 Funded by OIA, the International Travel Grant (ITG) for Teachers College students engaging in academic activities abroad 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 awards up to four grants of $500 once in the fall and once in the spring 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 and supplies. Award recipients will be required to submit a summary report of their research or other activities following completion of their trip. OIA may publish reports on the OIA website or invite award recipients to present their work at a student forum.
