The Einaudi Center funded 100 international research travel grants for graduate students totaling $134,360. The Graduate Student Travel Grant program provides support for conducting short-term research and/or fieldwork in countries outside the United States between April 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016.
The increase in funding is related to the infusion of internationalization funds, made available through the Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs. The students came from a variety of fields. Most students (40%) are headed to Asia. A sizable number are traveling to Latin America (23%), Europe (20%), Africa (13%), Australia (2%), and the Near East (2%) respectively.
