Opportunities to fund your own IYO Program or Event

To ensure that students are engaging in meaningful ways for their respective disciplines, colleges and departments are encouraged to pursue and develop their own programming. OIP has dedicated substantial funding (1:1 matching required) for the purpose of supporting programs and events that meet the IYO objectives.

This committee provides guidance and leadership in planning and carrying out the associated IYO. To learn more about the IYO Ecuador Committee click here.
