100k strong

100,000 Strong in the Americas

100,000 Strong in the Americas uses the principle of leveraged innovation with higher education institutions (HEIs) that demonstrate the greatest commitment and innovation toward increasing study abroad opportunities between the United States and countries in the Western Hemisphere. In applying for the Innovation Fund grants, HEIs will be asked to demonstrate how they will assert leadership in implementing the innovations proposed, how they will address on-campus barriers to student mobility, how they will maintain student engagement, and how they will commit to making concrete changes to expand access to study abroad as sending and/or hosting institutions.



el salvador

El Salvador

  • With assistance from the Grants Office and the Learning Resources & Distance Education department, ISP applied for a 100,000 Strong in the Americas Innovation Grant with a partner institution in Colombia​.
  • Currently ISP is working with the Grants Office and the Architecture & Interior Design Program (AIP) to apply for another 100,000 Strong in the Americas Innovation Grant with a partner institution in El Salvador.
  • The thematic core of the grant application was Distance Learning Innovation: COC and the Colombian partner proposed launching a program to improve online learning technologies and methodologies.
  • This grant application's theme is centered on Sustainable Design: working with the El Salvadorian partner school and Habitat for Humanity, El Salvador, AIP seeks to popularize LEED certification best practices and familiarize the local community in that country with sustainability concepts central in architecture and design.

Lecture Abroad Opportunities


As the International Affairs office continues to expand our international recruitment efforts to different regions, we have also solidified partnerships with various universities and we are looking to send for 1-2 faculty COC Professors to Lecture abroad each academic year (depending on travel restrictions).

Dates for lecture: After last day of semester (total of 7-10 travel days).

Travel logistics: ISP will cover the roundtrip airfare and visa (if needed).

In-country costs are typically covered by partner schools.
