IPID International Travel Grant 2016

IPID International Travel Grant 2016

Interdisciplinary Perspectives on International Development (IPID) International Travel Grants, of $1,250 each, are awarded to support University of Minnesota students who are participating in research, internship, or work experience related to international development. Award may be used from May – December 2016. Project should range in length from three (3) weeks to four (4) months.

The goal of the grant is to provide an additional funding source to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students participating in international research, internship, or work experiences. With our focus on international development, this opportunity not only allows specific students to gather and conduct research, but it also allows for all students throughout the university to gain insights into their findings through recipient reporting requirements.
