International Travel Fellowships
Our funding is to internationalize the experience of our students in the College of Education with our partner institutions and study abroad to expand international knowledge as it relates to the different fields of education for our graduate students.
The COE has a collaborative exchange program with Shanghai Normal University - Tianhua College in Shanghai, China. Each summer COE Elementary Education faculty teach at SNU-TC. We also have other collaborative relationships with universities in China, including Beijing Normal University, East China Normal University, and Nanjing Normal University.
Two faculty members are directors of faculty-led study abroad programs. Study abroads have taken students to places such as the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, and Austria.
Our goal is $12,000. We hope to fund three $4,000 stipends for graduate students to study at one of our partner institutions or study abroad programs. They would travel with a faculty member who is already part of the teacher exchange program or the study abroad program.
