From assisting in the procurement of funding to coordinating programs that foster global engagement and facilitating collaboration across disciplines the Office of International Programs (OIP) supports ACES faculty and staff as they create abundant food and energy, a healthy environment, and successful families and communities around the globe.
OIP proactively develops and shares international funding and revenue generation opportunities for ACES faculty and staff.
An OIP flagship program—the ACES Academy for Global Engagement or Global Academy—is a unique training program designed for junior and midcareer ACES-faculty. Admitted faculty participate in a series of scholarly and experiential activities designed to prepare them for lifelong academic engagement in the global arena.

Opportunities (Funding and Educational)
To help our undergraduate students identify international opportunities, including internships, scholarships, research experiences, and awards, we maintain a list of various opportunities for undergraduates.
Getting Involved on Campus
OIP partners with student groups that support global interests such as food security:
Unify promotes food security, sustainable systems, and human livelihood through collaboration with other student organizations within and outside The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
We encourage undergraduate students to study abroad for a semester, a year, or a summer, or even just to participate in a study trip over winter or spring break. Visit the ACES Study Abroad website to imagine where you can go.
