FACULTY EXCHANGE INITIATIVE (Mobility)

THE IFFTI MOBILITY INITIATIVE IS AN HONORARIUM-BASED PROGRAM FOR FACULTY, STAFF AND POST-DOCS TO FUND SHORT TERM VISITS BY INDIVIDUALS TO PRESENT OR ADVISE ON SPECIALIST AREAS OF FASHION EDUCATION.

Visits can take place within regions as well as across continents. A selection committee assesses applications two times a year and awards US$1,000 for intra-continental and US$2,000 for inter-continental proposals. Successful applicants are asked to submit a written report or short video about what they shared and learned on the trip to be shared on the website. The honorarium then will be transferred to the individual's home institution.
