Faculty and staff are invited to apply for a travel grant to attend a two-week Spanish language course in Puebla, Mexico, this summer where participants will take Spanish classes from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with the possibility to teach, offer seminar/workshops, or explore collaboration with peers in the afternoons.
With the intention of strengthening ties between Jesuit institutions, the Ibero Puebla, through its International Academic Affairs office, is offering a non-tuition Spanish Language Program for faculty and staff from AJCU institutions.
The dates for the program are as follows:
- Summer session 1 will begin Monday, June 4, and end Friday, June 15. The application deadline is Sunday, April 15.
- Summer session 2 will begin Monday, June 18, and end Friday, June 29. The application deadline is Monday, April 30.
Marquette’s Office of International Education will sponsor four faculty/staff round-trip airfare to Puebla for participation in either two weeks of the program (twelve-month staff members are required to have immediate supervisor approval).
Those interested should write a one-page response to this question: How would this Spanish language opportunity assist you and your role in the university realizing Hispanic-serving Institution status by the 2026-27 school year?
Responses should be submitted to Karen Hess, international communications and marketing coordinator for the Office of International Education, no later than Monday, April 9.
