International Mobility Fund (IMF)The International Mobility Fund (IMF) provides international opportunities to BCIT regular faculty, specialized faculty, and BCGEU faculty in furthering their knowledge and skills to participate in international research and/or teaching activities overseas.
These activities promote global competitiveness, recognition, and experiential growth for individuals and the institute, to keep our educational offerings current.
Individual applicants from any of BCIT's six schools, Applied Research, and the Learning and Teaching Center (LTC) are eligible for funding up to a maximum of $5000 per application, including submissions for collaborative projects and/or initiatives. An equitable allocation of funding of $10,000 each fiscal year will be disbursed to each BCIT School, Applied Research, and LTC.
Distribution of these funds is determined semi-annually by an adjudication committee consisting of representatives from each school, Applied Research, and LTC. Candidates will be notified of the outcomes within two weeks of the committee meeting.
