Program Description:

Cal Poly Global Programs 

Travel Grant Application 


The Cal Poly International Center accepts modest grant requests to support international travel of faculty members for the purpose of developing new Custom Cal Poly Global Programs.  Grants can help fund visits to single sites or to multiple sites within one country or world region.  Faculty members who hold appropriate credentials to teach Cal Poly courses and who are in their second or higher year on the faculty are eligible to apply; faculty must have the full support of their department chair and college dean.  

View the Travel Grant Announcement.  

Grant Amounts
Grant requests of up to $3,000 will be reviewed.  Qualifying expenses may include: round-trip travel costs (airfare, baggage costs, ground transportation), appropriate per diem (actual costs of lodging/meals up to but not exceeding the published federal rates), local costs related directly to programmatic research, and travel insurance. 

Competitive Funding Priorities 
  • Documented matching funds from the applicant’s department and/or college, personal research fund, or other source
  • Program development in countries or regions where Cal Poly has few or no current programs
  • Academic disciplines not currently well represented in faculty-led programs
  • Emphasis on accessibility to students of limited economic means and in underrepresented populations
  • Interdisciplinary courses and/or inclusion of GE courses 
Service Provider Stipulation  
Applicants must intend to work with one of Cal Poly’s approved Service Providers (see Faculty Resources), or submit a justification as to the credentials of another Service Provider or host institution.  
Grant Cycle (travel must fall within these dates) June 2020 - May 2021
Grant Application Deadline March 15, 2020

Faculty are encouraged to consult the Global Programs staff at the International Center with any questions or to discuss their ideas for program development (
