Penn State faculty and students will be eligible for thousands of dollars in grants to support international travel, the university announced Thursday.
The money is intended to further Penn State’s commitment to being a university with a worldwide reach, said Michael Adewumi, the university’s vice provost for global programs, in a news release.
The university will make available up to $4,000 so that faculty can accompany students on international programs that will have a long-term substantial impact on the academic unit. A similar type of grants up to $4,000 will be available for faculty to travel with students on programs offered through a partner institution.
Penn State will award additional travel grants of up to $2,500 for students and $1,500 for faculty. Graduate students attending professional conferences or events outside the country will be eligible for up to $500 financial support.
The deadline to apply for the first round of funding is Feb. 15.
