Dear faculty colleagues,
I am pleased to announce a new opportunity for faculty and students: the President’s Award for Global Learning.
Recently created by the International Board of Advisors, this program provides funding for faculty and students to design and implement a project in an international location. It combines academic coursework with real-world experience in a multidisciplinary collaboration.
I encourage you to attend a networking breakfast for faculty on March 27th at 8:30 am. You can find additional details and RSVP here.
The President’s Award for Global Learning provides honorariums to faculty who serve as mentors to student teams, funding for international travel, and up to $25,000 for project implementation. Teams are invited to propose a project under the themes of social impact, entrepreneurship, or expanding research, in one of seven eligible regions of the world. One proposal per region will be selected by President Fenves.
The University of Texas at Austin is committed to empowering faculty and students to take on the world's most pressing challenges together.
Executive Vice President and Provost
