IU faculty can apply for grants to facilitate advanced language competence necessary to conduct planned research, to enhance teaching, or to engage in other university-related activities.
These grants will typically be awarded to cover the costs of attending intensive language programs in the United States or, if necessary, abroad, for special tutorials, or for regularly offered language courses.
Applicants should complete any introductory level language course sequences regularly offered at their home campus before IU Global will consider funding language study abroad. The language training must be directly relevant to the applicant’s research and teaching interests. It must be feasible for the language training to be completed within the timeframe indicated in the application and within the requested budget. Self-study programs will not be funded.
There is a funding maximum of $5,000.
