Faculty members: What you are doing globally? We want to showcase your accomplishments!

Did you recently teach abroad or present at a conference abroad? Are you collaborating with a scholar from outside the United States? Did you win an international award? Show your work abroad? Judge an art competition abroad?

» IFFTI Mobility Initiative for Faculty, Staff, & Post-Doc Travel The IFFTI Mobility Initiative is an honorarium-based program to fund short term visits by individuals to present or advise on specialist areas of fashion education. Visits can take place within regions as well as across continents. A selection committee assesses applications two times a year and awards US$1,000 for intra-continental and US$2,000 for inter-continental proposals. The Education Initiatives Subcommittee believes short visits between and among member institutions are an important aspect of informing and promoting the educational/pedagogical/skills development work of individuals members. Successful applicants are asked to submit a written report or short video about what they shared and learned on the trip to be shared on the website. The honorarium then will be transferred to the individuals directly or their home institution.
