The Office of International Affairs helps faculty and staff engage internationally and supports global teaching, research and service activity.

The following is a sampling of some of the support we can provide.

Invite a Visiting Scholar

The Office of International Students and Scholars provides guidance on how to invite a visiting scholar to Lehigh and how to hire a foreign national.

We also have a dedicated staff person who can arrange the logistics for international research visitors on short- and long-term visits. We can help you find housing and schools for their families, facilitate immigration paperwork and help get university credentials like an ID and email address.

Lead an International Experience for Students

The Study Abroad Office helps develop and manage faculty-led study abroad programs. We can help you plan a program and get course approval, organize pre-departure orientations for your students, provide 24/7 support during the program, and arrange after-trip assessment. We have some seed money to start new programs and help established ones. To learn more, contact Katie Radande, Director, Study Abroad, at or (610) 758-4735.

In addition, the Iacocca International Internship Program invites faculty and staff to submit proposals for group programs. Learn more…

Get Funding for Your Work

The Faculty Grants for International Connections can help you develop or enhance international connections with colleagues in academic or research institutions abroad, with the hope that a focus on areas of mutual interest will lead to expanded international collaborations. We also offer grants for doctoral candidates.

The Office of Fellowship Advising coordinates faculty and staff applications for Fulbright scholarships. The Fulbright Program offers university faculty year- or semester-long grants to research and teach overseas, as well as short-term consulting grants. This process begins with a one-on-one consultation to match faculty interests and skills with open scholarships. We also offer application review by a team of faculty who have received Fulbright scholarships themselves.
