Several internal grants are available on a competitive basis. IUPUI funding opportunities include, but are not limited to:

  • Faculty & Staff Undergraduate Recruitment Travel Grant: Grants of up to $1,000 each may be awarded to a faculty or academic staff member to support school-approved international undergraduate student recruitment efforts. Faculty/staff may apply for funding to engage in the recruitment of undergraduate degree-seeking students in target regions. For further details and proposal guidelines, contact Sarah Wann, Assistant Director, International Admissions.
  • International Development Fund: up to $15,000 is available for development of projects/initiatives in international areas. Ideally, the IDF grant serves as venture capital to stimulate additional funding for international activities from extramural sources, which provide indirect costs.
