Before You Go - Graduate Students

**SLA Funds will not be distributed until awardees have completed all the "Before You Go" Requirements**

  • Confirm acceptance of the award by March 21 by completing the Grant Award Confirmation Google Form (available on the Forms page). 
     
  • Register your travel with NDI. Registering permits NDI to reach out to you in case any emergencies arise in your travel area. 
     
  • Watch the virtual SLA Grant CSLC Pre-Departure Session video (to be shared with all recipients in April).
     
  • Take the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) assessment to assess your intercultural competency. (More details will be given about this in the virtual pre-departure orientation video).
     
  • Research and make all necessary arrangements for your travel, residence, and study in country in accordance with your proposal for SLA Grant funding.
