Global Faculty Challenge

Smithsonian Castle

Smithsonian University Travel Programs' 
Global Faculty Challenge

$100,000 available in research funds for participating educators 

Smithsonian University Travel Programs (SUTP) challenges college and university faculty across the U.S. to incorporate educational travel in their current courses to promote global perspectives and experiential learning amoung their students.

The Global Faculty Challenge, sponsored by SUTP through the financial support of WorldStrides, offers customized travel experiences where students can learn more about a variety of fields of studies along with a deeper understanding of the science, history, art, and culture of the destinations.

To earn a $2,500 award, faculty leaders must work with the SUTP team to customize an SUTP travel program that departs between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018 and that aligns with course curriculum, and recruit a group of 10 or more students to travel on the program. 

To begin customizing a faculty-led travel program to meet this challenge, call 1-800-422-2368 or click here for more information.
