Faculty Internationalization Grants


Faculty Internationalization Grants are available for activities with goals such as improved internationalization of the curriculum, the development or set-up of international experiences (credit-bearing or non-credit-bearing) for students and research or developmental for faculty,  and other projects that enhance the internationalization of The University of Tulsa and support the University’s Strategic International plan. Research projects with limited impact on the internationalization of the campus or that can be funded through Faculty Research Grants should be submitted to the Faculty Research Grant Program and not the Faculty Internationalization Grant Program.  Faculty who anticipate applying for a Faculty Internationalization Grant are encouraged to discuss their proposal with the Chair of the committee, possibly to expand the scope and impact of the project or to more clearly define the project.


Completed applications must be received by the Provost’s Office by February 1 of each year and awards will be made by March 1.

Size of the Grants

Projects at four funding levels will be considered:

  1. Visiting Scholars: (recommended maximum award 2K): Partial support for research colleagues and/or faculty from partner universities whose presence on campus will facilitate curriculum development, expose faculty and students to comparative research methods, or enhance faculty and/or student understanding.
  2. Curriculum Development (recommended maximum award 3K): Material needs (software, library orders, etc.) for projects that will enhance curriculum through an international component and/or facilitate international contacts of importance for faculty and their students.
  3. Interdisciplinary Development (recommended maximum award 5K per year): Interdisciplinary or cross-departmental efforts that may involve a university or universities abroad. Grants at this level should be solicited by a minimum of two people in two departments working together. Interdisciplinary Development grants may be multiyear proposals.
  4. Strategic Partnership (recommended maximum award 10K per year): Long-range international partnership projects that engage TU’s recognized strengths on a macro-level in the international arena. Successful grants in this area imply an intention to apply for funding from national or international sources. Strategic Partnership grants may be multiyear proposals.
