Successful recipients are expected to provide a brief summary (up to 4 pages) of project outcomes and any proposed next steps within one month of completion.
We also ask that recipients thank or give credit to the Fund when the opportunity presents itself.

Proposals are screened by committee with recommendations to the Vice Provost of Faculty Affairs for final approval.
The grants are funded by the INTO OSU Joint Venture Internationalization Fund. The program may be paused once the annual maximum funding has been distributed. We will assess the program's effectiveness and return on investment in Spring 2023. If the program is approved to continue, it will become a matching program with home units.
