Dean’s Fund Awards for International Engagement: Deadline February 1

The College of Forestry is committed to expanding international learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. The Dean’s Fund Awards for International Engagement have been put in place to assist students in pursuing their interests through international study, research, internships, and other collaborative experiences.

Just because we cannot currently travel does not mean that global connections and experiences are unavailable or unimportant!  The events of 2020 have taught us that we are deeply interconnected with people and ecosystems around the globe.  In this spirit, the COF International Programs Team will run our Dean’s Fund for International Engagement awards with a slight adjustment.  For winter and spring terms, we will accept applications for virtual experiences of an international nature.  These could be online conferences, internships, or study programs.  In addition to the standard application requirements, you will be asked to answer the following question:

How does this program connect you with international peers and/or mentors, and how does it contribute to your global understanding of your field of study?  Your replies to this will help us evaluate the alignment of your request with the core mission of the Dean’s Fund Awards for International Engagement.

If you have questions about your proposal, you are welcome to contact us before the deadline.

  • The application deadline is February 1 for international experiences beginning in Winter or Spring term (February – June).
  • The next application deadline will be April 1 for international experiences beginning in Summer term (June – Sept).
