Faculty development grant for
short-term study abroad programs

The Haenicke Institute has established a discovery grant for WMU faculty who are interested in developing a short-term, study abroad program. The grant will contribute towards expenses to a maximum of 75 percent of total costs for faculty to participate in one of WMU's summer 2009 programs taught by a WMU professor to gain first-hand experience of how to develop and lead a short-term program. Recipients will be encouraged to propose a program they will lead within the next three years.

Eligibility requirements:

  • Eligibility to lead a WMU study abroad program as determined by department, college, and the Haenicke Institute, i.e. continuing appointment or special approval of department and college)
  • Ability to participate actively in a minimum of ¾ of the program (ranging from 2-6 weeks)
  • Signature of department chair and dean
  • Approval of faculty director of the program


Questions?: Contact Dr. Jane Blyth Warren (269) 387-5890, or jane.blyth.warren@wmich.edu

The grant provides funding to participate in a discipline-appropriate WMU faculty-led, short-term program.
