Option for both faculty and staff
USAC FIDA award – Deadline December 2, 2019 (ended) Accordion Closed
The application for summer 2021 will be available September 1, 2020. The University Studies Abroad Consortium and Northern Arizona University invite faculty and professional staff members who wish to participate in USAC-sponsored study abroad programs to apply for a summer 2020 FIDA. This program is geared towards faculty and staff with limited prior international experience. Applications from those who previously received a FIDA or have taught as a USAC Visiting Professor are disqualified in order to allow the maximum number of faculty and staff to have this opportunity. Preference will be given to applicants with regular direct contact to students.
