Global Partnerships-Faculty Travel Grants

In order to deepen UMD’s existing international connections, the Office of International Affairs (OIA) sponsors the Global Partnerships-Faculty Travel Grant Competition. Funds support one faculty member to travel to one or more existing UMD partner institutions to develop new collaborative projects and programs, or to improve the implementation of existing projects. Awards will be up to $5,000 per project, which may be applied to transportation, accommodations, food, and other travel-related expenses. Academic departments, colleges, or schools are required to supply an additional 20% of the amount of the grant request. Two calls for proposals are issued annually, with up to four grants awarded each round. For more information, contact Dr. Joseph Scholten at (301) 405-1559.
