UI presents workshop on international research options for students
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Students interested in learning how to find money
to support research projects overseas will have the opportunity Wednesday,
Oct. 15, to hear from three UI professors who are familiar with students
conducting international research.
University of Iowa International Programs is sponsoring a workshop for
graduate and undergraduate students, "Conducting International Research,"
from 4:30-6 p.m. in the International Center Lounge.
The workshop will focus on the value of exploring another culture by
conducting research in foreign countries. Laurie Graham, associate professor
in anthropology; Scott McNabb, associate professor in education; and Burt
Kross, associate professor in preventive medicine, will discuss how to
develop a project and write a grant proposal for funding. Several students
who have conducted research abroad with scholarship support will talk about
what actually happens in the field. The workshop will also provide information
on a variety of international scholarships, internships, and fellowships.
UI International Programs consists of a number of offices, centers,
degree programs, academic programs, research projects and services. Organized
under the associate provost and dean for international programs, these
units serve to further internationalize the campus and community and promote
global scholarship, research and teaching.
The International Center is located at the end of Ferson Avenue in Iowa
City, off of Park Road or by foot up the stairway from Riverside Drive.
