Global Career Launch
Global Career Launch is an innovative global internship framework for faculty to lead undergraduate and graduate students in high-impact work and research experiences abroad.
Faculty with a new or established relationship at a university, research center, corporation or other industry partner abroad serve as program directors, leading and supporting cohorts of up to 10 students as they intern or conduct research abroad.
Tenure and non-tenure track faculty, lecturers, and professors of the practice, with a minimum of three years of experience at UT Austin are eligible for this award. Global Career Launch faculty agree to: collaborate with an existing or new international partner; recruit a minimum of five students per year; commit to developing a high-impact learning model; collaborate with and be responsive to all policies set forth by Texas Global; and direct the program for a minimum of two years, with evidence that the model is sustainable past year three.
Texas Global awards Global Career Launch grants on a semi-annual basis, once in the fall semester, and once in spring semester.
The grant period covers two consecutive years from the time of the award.
