Participation in WIU programs
Faculty and staff members can be eligible to participate in some faculty-led study abroad programs.  Payment of program costs and course enrollment are required.  For more information about being a participant in a faculty-led study abroad program, please contact us.

Fulbright-Hays programs
Targeted primarily at current and future educators, these U.S. Department of Education-administered grant programs allow faculty the opportunity to develop international educational experiences that further foreign language and area expertise.  Participants serve as informal cultural ambassadors and engage in an exchange of knowledge and culture while overseas.

Fulbright-Hays programs include Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad, Faculty Research Abroad, Group Projects Abroad, and Seminars Abroad.  For more information on applying for these grants, please contact the Office of Sponsored Projects.


Fulbright Scholars programs
Fulbright Scholars programs are administered by the U.S. Department of State and are the professional counterpart to the Fulbright Scholarships available to students.  More information about these programs is available from the Office of Sponsored Projects.

Other opportunities
Council on International Education Exchange (CIEE)
