International Programs and Partnerships serves the UTRGV faculty through study abroad, exchange visitor programs and affiliation agreements. 

Faculty-led Study Abroad Program

Unfortunately, the faculty-led Study Abroad proposal submission cycle is closed for the 2017-2018 summer academic cycle.

If your students are interested in other international academic experiences you can direct them to our office.

J-1 Scholars

If you need guidance on how to host a visiting scholar on the exchange visitor program (J-1 visa) please reach out to us. This is the J-1 application for your reference.


We also provide leadership in the creation of affiliation and program agreements with institutions abroad that share research and academic agendas with your college or department.
