International Teaching Opportunities for Faculty

Partnering with GEO Study Abroad provides faculty from Northwest partner institutions a unique opportunity to teach at select GEO sites. Northwest faculty teach two courses during a term and work in collaboration with GEO’s onsite administrative staff and local faculty. For additional information about each academic program, please refer to the specific program page of the website. More detailed information about the specific teaching opportunities will be announced through the study abroad offices on your campus. If you would like to receive an email once the call for proposals is announced please contact

The most recent call for development grants of up to $3,000 is to support international travel for the purpose of developing new, faculty-led study abroad programs. Grants can help fund a visit to a single site or to multiple sites within one country or world region. Proposed activities may occur during the 2017 calendar year. Further information can be downloaded HERE. The deadline for these grants is November 1, 2016.
