The Office of International Affairs funds grants that are made available to faculty members for interdisciplinary conferences and workshops on international themes, travel, international collaborative research, pre-dissertation research, as well as study abroad programs. International Affairs also serves as the campus representative for the Fulbright U.S. Scholars program.
The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program is designed to increase mutual understanding between the United States and other countries and promote collaboration and the exchange of ideas among students, faculty, professionals, and teachers.
The Fulbright-Hays Faculty Research Abroad (FRA) Fellowship Program provides grants to colleges and universities to fund faculty to maintain and improve their area studies and foreign language skills by conducting research in other countries for periods of three to 12 months.
All of these grant programs serve to promote international educational opportunities that will have a lasting impact on increasing global awareness and understanding.
Additional grant and scholarship opportunities in Japan, Korea and China are available from the East Asian Studies Center.
The Office of Research offers tailored grant searches related to the Area Studies Centers (Latin American Studies, East Asian Studies, African Studies, Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies, Middle East Studies) and the Ohio State Global Gateways (China, India, Brazil).
