International Experience Funding

The competitive International Experience Funding program provides financial assistance to undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff participating in international experiences. Examples of qualifying experiences include, but are not limited to, international research, international service trips, visits to Drexel partner institutions or partnership development visits.

Please note, the following experiences do not qualify for international experience funding:

  • Faculty and graduate students presenting at international conferences
  • Students participating in a long- or short-term study abroad program

Faculty and students who are taking part in these experience should instead apply for an International Travel AwardStudy Abroad scholarship, or seek Intensive Course Abroad seed funding from Ahaji Schreffler, ahaji@drexel.edu
