Wang Center for Global Education

Wang Center Grants

The Wang Center Grant program encourages new global initiatives, internationalizes the curriculum and fosters student involvement in academic research.  Each year, the Global Education Committee awards grants to qualified students, faculty and student-faculty research teams. Students who have already had a significant amount of cross-cultural experience are encouraged to complete an international independent research project.

The Wang Center gives yearly grants to students who are interested in this opportunity.  Students must be cleared and registered by the Wang Center. Please contact the Wang Center for application instructions and more details.
