President's Innovation Fund for International Experiences

The President's Innovation Fund for International Experiences (PIFIE) provides seed funding to faculty members at any Harvard school, to support the development of creative and significant academic experiences abroad for Harvard College students. Funded through the generosity of David Rockefeller as part of his commitment to support international experiences for students at the College, these grants seek to foster the participation of faculty at all Harvard schools (including graduate and professional), departments, centers, and other academic units in expanding international opportunities for Harvard undergraduates. This may mean developing experience-based courses for students overseas, including courses prior to and/or following their international experience; involving undergraduates in an ongoing overseas project sponsored by a Harvard graduate or professional school, department, center, or other academic unit; or other innovative projects.
