Faculty Internationalization Grants (FIG) are designed to encourage and support OSU faculty who are working to further OSU’s internationalization efforts as well their own professional involvement in activities that enhance our teaching, research and engagement with topics and colleagues beyond the U.S. OSU’s current internationalization efforts include recruitment and retention of diverse international students, developing and supporting education abroad opportunities for OSU’s domestic students, promoting global learning through curricular and co-curricular means, and fostering strategic international partnerships to promote faculty research and outreach activities. Grants are available to OSU faculty to help promote international research, partnership, and collaboration. The applicant’s unit is expected to share the cost of this investment to promote internationalization across the University.
Awardees must submit a one-page FIG Reflection Report to their college/unit and International Programs within 30 days of completing the activity. The report should include:
IP will post these reports on our website to illustrate the depth and breadth of international activity on campus and to provide a conduit for networking amongst faculty.
The Division of International Programs is currently not accepting FIG applications for 2015-16
