The Global Study Program and Grants

The Center manages a fund previously established in Dr. Kesh’s name to support international travel for students and faculty who engage in collaborative research and media production. These one-time grants help defray the cost of experiences such as semester-long exchanges, short study trips, and internships outside the U.S.  A companion effort will help to bring more international students and faculty to Ithaca College.

A few projects that have received funding include:

  • Three students and Professor Kati Lustiyk traveled to Doha and Qatar and Al Jazeera Children's Channel's television programming.
  • Students headed to the Olympic Games in London to intern with NBC Sports.
  • The Director of The Park Media and two students traveled to Antananarivo, Madagascar to lead a master class for local youth on producing naturalist outreach videos. The project and workshop were held by invitation from the National Meeting of Short films in Madagascar.
  • A student traveled to India to work a film project.
