Funding for Faculty and Staff

OIA is pleased to continue to offer a number of grants to IUPUI, IUPUC, and IUFW faculty and staff to advance campus priorities around international education for 2020-2021. We are currently sponsoring the following grant programs, and strongly encourage you to apply.

Virtual Global Learning Fellows Grant Program

The Virtual Global Learning Fellows Program (formerly Virtual Exchange Fellows Program) is designed to create a cohort of IUPUI, IUPUC, and IUFW faculty and staff who are prepared to facilitate global learning in a virtual environment (using video conference, discussion boards, collaborative platforms, messaging tools, etc.) in curricular and co-curricular activities. The cohort will engage in professional development, form an instructional support system, implement a virtual global learning activity in their course or student development program, and be part of a growing IU network that supports the advancement global learning.

Sustainable Development Goals Grant Program

The Office of International Affairs is pursuing a new strategy of campus internationalization around the UN Sustainable Development Goals (the SDGs). OIA is encouraging faculty and staff at IUPUI to commit to this agenda by advancing scholarship, teaching, and engagement that actively pursues the SDG framework within local and global contexts.

Student Integration and Intercultural Engagement

The Office of International Affairs is announcing a new funding initiative to create intentional and meaningful opportunities for international and domestic student integration in classes and on campus. These funds will be provided to faculty and staff to develop or enhance courses or co-curricular programs to provide and sustain collective learning, intercultural engagement, group research, and community outreach by international and domestic students. These funds will build intentional opportunities for this type of student integration, where international students and domestic students work more closely together, in and outside of IUPUI classrooms, and thus directly contribute to making IUPUI a more global and inclusive campus.

Global Impact Research Grant (GIRG)

Full-time, tenure-track eligible faculty at IUPUI, IUPUC and IUFW are invited to apply to the GIRG. The goal of this grant program is to provide a limited number of high-potential awards that propose interdisciplinary mechanisms to tackle issues that align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. While there are 17 distinct goals, the SDGs are also indivisible, and they require interdisciplinary and transnational research that is transformative and comprehensive.

OIA also supports faculty through Federal grant programs, such as Fulbright and the Diplomacy Lab.

Grants from OVPIA

In addition to the grants listed above, IUPUI faculty are eligible for grants funded through the Office of the Vice Presdient for International Affairs (OVPIA). These grants can be used to conduct research, cover costs of international travel, professional development, and more.
