OIA and Dean of Research build Stanford Seed Funding site to support faculty research and teaching

Across campus are numerous internal funding opportunities for university research, teaching and other academic endeavors, but considering the expansive nature of the university, the groundwork of figuring out where they are or how to apply has been a challenge. The Office of International Affairs built and launched the Stanford Seed Funding website in order to simplify this process and reduce the administrative burden of obtaining funding.

Summer travel recommendations for faculty and staff going abroad

Are you traveling this summer to conduct research or work on an international project? Take a few minutes to register your trip at Stanford MyTrips.

The international travel registry allows the University to assist travelers in the event of an emergency. If you book your trip through Egencia or Stanford Travel, your trip is registered automatically. If you prefer to book travel through other services, it is still very easy to register your trip.

"International Academy" Travel Preparation Course for Students

Preparing for international travel can often seem overwhelming, with various policies, handbooks, forms, orientations, and pre-departure checklists to navigate. For administrators of international programs, making sure that information and resources are current and thorough can be a time-consuming process, particularly as the number of international opportunities increase and travel becomes more complex.

Stanford platform offers central location for on & off-campus learning programs

Students interested in pursuing internships, research projects, public service gigs and study tours – across the United States and around the world – will find an ever-growing list of activities listed on the new platform, Stanford On & Off-Campus Learning Opportunities.

Undergraduate and graduate students alike are invited to search the platform – known as SOLO for short – by keyword and/or by location – for programs off the Farm.

OIA launches SOLO platform to alleviate student and staff burdens

University data shows that more than 600 undergraduate students travel on extended Stanford academic international opportunities that are provided by academic units outside of the Bing Overseas Studies Program. Understanding the student challenge in finding these opportunities, the OIA convened a core group of initial stakeholders from diverse places on campus looking to alleviate this student burden.

OIA launches opportunities platform to alleviate student and staff burdens

Picture this, you’re a Stanford student interested in gaining some international experience through a Stanford opportunity during spring or summer break. Where do you start your search?

Of course, you can go to one of the larger units on campus that offer such opportunities, such as, the Bing Overseas Studies Program (if you are an undergraduate), Stanford Global Studies or the Haas Center for Public Service, but is there more? The answer is, YES, there is much more, but how do you find these opportunities?

Traffic decongestion projects at home and abroad

If you are looking for an incentive for going green at Stanford, join Congestion and Parking Incentives (CAPRI), a new commuting program, focused on peak commuters. Launched in April 2012, almost 4,000 Stanford people have registered on this pilot project and over $75,000 has been paid out as incentives so far. Professor Prabhakar, lead investigator of CAPRI and professor of electrical engineering and computer science, has previously tested his project to mitigate traffic congestion during peak commuting hours in Bangalore, India and Singapore.
