Campus Resources for International Programs and Activities

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has a number of nation-leading programs and area studies centers, including the Office of Study Abroad, the Center for Global Studies, the Center for African Studies, the Center for South Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, the Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies, the Women and Gender in Global Perspectives program, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the Lemann Institute for Brazilian Studies, the Russian, East European and Eurasian Center, the European Union Center, and International Programs and Studies. Many of these units award travel grants and other kinds of support on a competitive basis to BAUP, MUP and PhD students in DURP working on international and transnational issues. Also, students may wish to develop a deeper understanding of a specific region and culture by securing language training through generous funding provided by the Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowships (FLAS) program. FLAS is an important source of funding for students interested in specializing in a specific region of the world. DURP students could also consider receiving a GRID certificate from the Women and Gender in Global Perspectives Program (WGGP), which is an academic unit in the International Programs and Studies (IPS) division, aimed at promoting the study of global human security and gender equity. Students should also check out the National and International Scholarships Program for information about support through programs such as Fulbright, Gates Cambridge, Mitchell, Marshall, Rhodes, and others.
