Faculty Funding

Program Development Grants

The Center for International Education (CIE) and the Programs Abroad Office (PAO) encourage proposals from full-time UT Knoxville faculty/staff for the development of study abroad or exchange courses/programs. To this end, CIE is making matching funds available for site visits to faculty/staff planning such programs.

Matching funds may be up to $1,500 per program based on reasonable cost estimates. The CIE grant will cover no more than one-half the cost of travel expenses related directly to program development. The remaining half is to come from such other UT Knoxville sources as department or college funds, or private (e.g. development) funds.

Full-time UT Knoxville faculty/staff are eligible to apply for funding. (Funds are not for individual research or student attendance at conferences.) Preference will be given to faculty who have not received prior funding. Only one person per site visit will be funded.  For more information, please download an application.
