Indiana University partners with leading institutions of higher education to offer exchange programs for graduate students and faculty members to enhance their learning, research, teaching, and professional development. Faculty members also have access to a variety of grants to support overseas study program development, language learning, participation in overseas conferences, and the hosting of short-term visitors at IU. Undergraduate students can look for study abroad and exchange opportunities through the Office of Overseas Study.
Exchange programs for graduate students and faculty
At the beginning of each academic year, graduate students and faculty members on any IU campus can apply to participate in an exchange program with one of IU's partner universities. The selected participants receive funding to cover airfare, housing, and some living expenses.
The Office of the Vice President for International Affairs offers a range of competitive funding opportunities for faculty who want to advance their research and teaching through international engagement. Opportunities that are available include:
- Global Gateway Seed Grants: China, Europe, India, and Mexico
- International Short-Term Visitors Grants
- Language Learning Grants
- Overseas Conference Grants
- Overseas Study Program Development Grants
Some grants have a matching fund requirement from the faculty member’s home campus, school, or department. To learn more about deadlines and requirements, visit IU Worldwide.
