Support for professional international travel is available up to an institutional maximum of $2,000. Faculty and staff may seek support from their departments and the staff development office, as well as from an international grant available through the international education office. The following tenure requirements must be met in order to be eligible for an international grant:
- Full-time faculty and staff must have completed the probationary period.
- Adjunct faculty must have completed at least six semesters at JCCC.
- Part-time staff must have completed at least three years of part-time employment at JCCC.
The highest priority in funding decisions will be given to opportunities that result in serious professional development; have classroom, job or curricular impact; and further institutional goals. Personal travel, while often beneficial, cannot be funded through college sources.
International grant applications are available on InfoShare. Use your JCCC username and system password to log in. You can also pick up an application from the international education office, COM 220.
