Proposal Process


Due to limited funding, we will not be accepting new proposal for Fiscal Year 2019.

Units seeking funding are invited to submit proposals to enhance academic services for international students. The focus should be to ensure retention, timely graduation, and students' satisfaction with their University of Minnesota experience. 

Proposals are reviewed by a committee that includes faculty, undergraduate associate deans, staff from ISSS, and student services. 

Units will be notified of approved funding amounts for specific projects for specific fiscal years. Projects may be funded for up to three fiscal years. 

At the end of each fiscal year, funds are transferred to the units, to cover their expenditures for providing these services.
