In 2013–14, the Provost and Vice President of Research and Economic Development have provided $20,000 in funding for faculty exploratory travel. The aim of the exploratory travel funds is to increase the number of faculty-led short-term Study Away programs towards an end of increasing students’ cultural competence. Additionally, funded travel will help to ensure faculty preparedness in safety measures for future short-term Study Away programs. The deadline for the spring round of funding is April 7, 2014. Please review the request for proposals here. Contact Study Away Director, Elizabeth Strong, 836-6368, if you have any questions.
