International Exchanges and Grant Opportunities for Graduate Students


Dear Graduate Students:

For many of you, international study and research are integral components of your academic training and professional development. Recognizing the importance of these opportunities, the Office of the Vice President for International Affairs (OVPIA) offers a variety of competitive grants and programs for graduate students from any discipline, department, or campus at IU.

We encourage you to explore the following opportunities in consultation with your home department graduate advisor or director of graduate studies, who can offer you academic advising tailored to your particular program.

Summer Pre-Dissertation Grants
Deadline: March 1, for Summer funding
Travel abroad for the summer to conduct pre-dissertation research. Activities supported include exploring potential research sites, archives, or other research resources; establishing institutional affiliations; and identifying and meeting local scholars and contacts.

International Enhancement Grants
Deadline: March 1, for Summer funding
Pursue academic training that adds or enhances an international component of your graduate program. Eligible activities include language classes and other degree-relevant classes not available at IU, a directed internship program, and workshops or seminars of at least two weeks in length.

International Exchange Programs for Fall 2020/Spring 2021
Deadline: November 1
Spend a semester or academic year abroad doing independent research at a partner university in China, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Thailand, or the U.K. (Participants selected for the program in Germany have the option to enroll in courses.) Applications are accepted through November 1 only, for participation the following academic year.
