Office of International Education

International Initiative Fund
The Office of International Education (OIE) makes grants ranging from $100 to $300 available to university
recognized or affiliated student organizations.* Funded proposals will foster international awareness and cross-
cultural exchange on campus preferably through the collaboration of two or more student organizations or by
one organization that is targeting a campus-wide, diverse audience.

Application guidelines follow. The materials listed below must be received by OIE 2- 3 weeks prior to the event:

In a cover letter, include your organization's name, funds requested, project title, proposed dates, coordinators
with contact information, and a brief abstract of the proposed project.


Provide a maximum 1-page description of your organization's purpose and current activities as well as a list of
officers and contact information.


Provide a 1-2 page description of the proposed project or event goals and objectives along with a timeline.
Explain what students are expected to gain or learn and how this will be accomplished. Explain how the event
will enhance cross-cultural understanding and appeal to the broader CMU community.

Show how funds will be used through a detailed breakdown of expenses. Funding for the following items will
not be considered: student salaries, alcohol, and indirect expenses/overhead. Off-campus activities are rarely
approved. Include any other sources of income for this project to reflect cost sharing.

Describe how and where the event will be advertised to reach a wide, diverse audience. OIE can advertise
your event in our Friday email. Please submit a one-paragraph event description via email to
jmcnabb@andrew.cmu.edu preferably one week in advance of your event (but no later than the Thursday
afternoon prior to your event) for inclusion in this email to international students and scholars.

E-Mail or hand-deliver proposals to: Jennifer McNabb (jmcnabb@andrew.cmu.edu)
