UFIC New Faculty Bulletin - January 14, 2013
As we begin a new semester, I would like to share some information with you about international events and resources.
STUDY ABROAD FAIR
This month UFIC hosts its spring Study Abroad Fair. I would like invite you to come out and visit the information tables, talk to faculty and staff who are leading study abroad programs, and learn about these exciting opportunities both for you and your students. The Study Abroad Fair will be held on the Reitz Union Colonnade on Wednesday, September 30th, from 10am – 3pm. More information can be found on our website http://www.ufic.ufl.edu/SAS/StudyAbroadFair.html.
INTERNATIONAL GRANT ASSISTANCE
I also wanted to share the resources and support for international grant proposals provided by our Program Development unit. This unit can help faculty identify and prepare a grant proposal with an international focus to advance teaching, research, public service and outreach. In addition, our website includes resources designed to guide faculty through the process of locating, writing, submitting and administering grants, contracts and fellowships at UF http://www.ufic.ufl.edu/PD/grants.html.
If you have any questions or would like more information on international program development, please do not hesitate to contact our program development office http://www.ufic.ufl.edu/PD/staff.html.
I hope to see you at the Fair and look forward to discussing international opportunities with you as the semester progresses.
