Grants and Opportunities

UC International is dedicated to supporting projects that extend the university's global reach. To that end, we have several grant opportunities available for faculty and staff.

We also alert faculty and staff to international opportunities to teach or research when available.


The program development grant supports faculty by providing funds for on-site travel to aid in the development of new study abroad courses.

Provides funding for faculty or staff who are interested in leading a study abroad program to travel with and be mentored by an experienced study abroad faculty leader.

Provides faculty leaders running study abroad programs with scholarship funding for committed students on their program.

The purpose of the Faculty/Staff International Incentive Grant is to provide support for the development of new collaborations with a counterpart at one of our strategic partner institutions.

Together the UC faculty or staff member and their partner counterpart would collaborate on sustainable projects in areas such as:

  • joint research and scholarship,
  • projects engaging students,
  • collaborative courses,
  • annual events, etc.


The University of Cincinnati is a member of University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC), which is a non-profit consortium of 33 US universities. 

With UC’s membership as an affiliate university, there are a number of opportunities available to UC faculty and staff, including the Visiting Professor Program. Professors from the University of Cincinnati have the unique opportunity to support the USAC mission and internationalize their home universities by teaching abroad.
