Salisbury Abroad Professional Development Grants

Up to $1000

Salisbury University is continually developing strategic global partnerships with select universities and higher education centers around the world.  These Salisbury Abroad partners offer academic opportunities for the entire University campus.  Our Salisbury Abroad partners have expressed specific interest in the exchange of faculty.  Faculty interested in spending a period of time abroad at a Salisbury Abroad partner engaged in teaching, lecturing, collaborating with colleagues, developing joint research projects, or engaging in other professional development may apply for a Faculty Salisbury Abroad Partner Development Grant.

Salisbury Abroad Partners include:

  • University of Tartu, Tartu, Estonia
  • Centers for Interamerican Studies, Cuenca, Ecuador
  • Anqing University, Anqing, China
  • University of Malaga, Malaga, Spain

Your proposal should include:

  • A description of your interest in the global partner and the activity you would be interested in pursuing (teach, lecture, joint research, etc) including the time frame you are available;
  • A full Curriculum Vita

Grants will be evaluated based on the faculty proposal and the needs of the Salisbury Abroad partner.  The Center for International Education can facilitate planning between the SU faculty applicant and the proposed host Salisbury Abroad Partner.  Preference will be extended to faculty with less international experience.

The grant is meant to assist in covering international travel costs.  Different Salisbury Abroad partners provide different support for visiting faculty.  Such support may include housing, office space, stipends, etc and will be determined on a case by case basis.

Please submit applications and address any questions to Brian Stiegler.
