Ann Arbor International Connections Grant

The Provost's Office invites proposals from U-M Ann Arbor faculty, staff and students who have new and creative ideas for connecting international students and scholars with the broader U-M community. Preference will be given to proposals that build ties among domestic and international students and/or international scholars.

About the Ann Arbor International Connections Grant

The University of Michigan values its culturally diverse campus and is committed to fostering a
welcoming and inclusive community for all students and scholars. In addition to all 50 United
States, students from 130 other countries study here, and 65 languages are taught here. This
unique combination of intellectual, cultural and geographic diversity presents great opportunities
for learning on our Ann Arbor campus. Our domestic students come from across the country to
study, exchange ideas, conduct research and learn from one another. International students
and scholars share the same educational goals with the added components of learning a new
culture and developing the skills that come from navigating a new academic system.
This funding program is open to teams of U-M Ann Arbor faculty, staff and students who have
new and creative ideas for connecting international students and scholars with the broader U-M
community. Preference will be given to proposals that build ties among domestic and
international students and/or international scholars. The goals of this competitive program
include:


  1. Creating structured opportunities for students and scholars to share their goals and
    challenges and to learn from these shared experiences.
  2. Developing peer support networks to facilitate the academic, cultural and social success of
    all students.
  3. Providing opportunities for all students to increase intercultural awareness and
    understanding.
