Jan 25 IPID Grant Presentations & 2016 Grant Launch

Each year, IPID awards grants amounting to $1,250 each to support UMN students who are participating in research, internship, or work experience related to international development. In 2015, international travel grants were awarded to four students who carried out their work in Congo, Tanzania, Nepal, and Saint Lucia.

Join us on Monday, January 25th as the 2015 awardees share the outcomes of their research and fieldwork experiences, and learn about the application process for this year.

Attendance is strongly recommended if you are planning to apply for a Travel Grant. Applications will be accepted from January 24 – March 13. More information about the 2016 Travel Grant is found on IPID’s website.
