Faculty Internationalization Fund

The Office of the Vice Provost for International Education is pleased to re-launch the Faculty Internationalization Fund (FIF) to support international engagement by UB faculty, specifically through the university’s many existing international affiliations and partnerships. Fixed grant awards of $500, $1,000 and $2,000 are available on a competitive basis. Preference is given to projects that are demonstrably sustainable, as opposed to one-off activities. New initiatives are strongly preferred over activities that represent a continuation of an existing collaboration.

Application Deadlines

February 1 for late spring or summer activities

May 1 for late summer or fall activities

October 1 for late winter or spring activities

SUNY Funding Opportunity for Faculty

The Global Chancellor’s Award for Internationalization (CAFI) is a SUNY-wide competition for grants of $4,000 to develop innovative and distinctive new study abroad programs to less commonly visited destinations. UB faculty have received a number of CAFI awards over the past 10 years.
