The U.S. Department of Education has a number of programs with funding opportunities of potential value to international education. Each one is different in purpose but collectively these programs fund a wide range of international activity: student exchange, curriculum development, post-graduate and faculty research, international development, university-community collaboration, and more. Familiarity with the goals of each program and the funding cycles and deadlines will aid international education leaders in the advance planning and preparation necessary for successful grant applications.
