Study Away Preview Grant

If you are planning a travel course and have not visited the country or region (or if a previous visit was some distance in the past or not relevant to travel-course planning), you may want to consider a preview trip during a school break.
Study Away Preview Grants are made available when there are unused funds remaining at the end of the year.  The Office of Global Engagement will announce a round of grant applications in the fall and another in the spring if funds remain available.  You will need to complete the Study Away Course Preview Grant proposal and attach a budget.
When travel is completed, a report will need to be filed with the Office of Global Engagement  within two weeks.  It should include a recap your experience so this information can be shared with faculty who may want to travel to these countries in the future.  Please compose a summary that includes the following:   
  • the purpose of your trip 
  • a daily itinerary with dates, activities and locations
  • key contacts, meetings and their outcomes 
  • a financial accounting, or expense report, of how the grant was spent 
  • any additional information or documents, especially photographs
The grant will underwrite the expenses of one faculty and the proposed course must be offered within two years of the completed travel.
