Through the generous support of the Stanley-UI Foundation Support Organization , the International Programs’ Major Projects Award promotes important contributions to scholarly debates and exchanges on international topics, issues, discoveries, and arts. Proposals for events that will take place on The University of Iowa campus and that will enhance international knowledge and understanding for University of Iowa faculty, staff, and students are therefore especially welcome.
While the International Programs Summer Research Fellowships  are intended to support research and creative activities of individual faculty members, the Major Projects Award encourages activities or endeavors on a broader scale. These may take the form of collaborations, symposia, conferences, lecture series, artistic exhibitions, and performance events.
