Travel Enrichment Grants are intended for students participating in off-campus programs who want to pursue an academic or personal/extra-curricular interest during study abroad or with intercultural experience within the U.S. Preference goes to those who have not previously received a grant through CIIS. Note that this is an excellent way to stretch your personal funds for studying abroad. You can find more information about successful grant applicants and what they accomplished with their grant here
For the Summer 2021, Fall 2021 and AY 2021-2022 Programs, the deadline for Travel & Research Grant Proposals is March 29, 2021.
(Historically, the standard deadlines are April 5 for Fall and AY programs, and November 5 for Spring programs; however due to the unusual circumstances affecting CIIS programs and processing due to the COVID crisis, the deadline has been updated for the upcoming 2021-2022 year to March 29, 2021.)
Proposals are reviewed by the Committee on International and Intercultural Studies and decisions announced about two weeks after the deadline.
