Science is an international endeavor including university undergraduate and graduate degrees, multicountry research projects and multinational scientific conferences. The UCF Office of International Studies (OIS) facilitates the development of study abroad programs in all academic areas, assisting with the internationalization of courses and programs, facilitating international partnerships, and assisting with the identification and procurement of external funding for internationalization. Rusty Okoniewski will highlight some of these programs and opportunities.

Mr. Rusty Okoniewski is the Assistant Director of the Office of International Studies at UCF and is in charge of fellowships including Fulbrights and grants among other university and community activities. Formerly, he was the Director of Sponsored Programs in the Institute for Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) at the University of Florida and Director of the Division of Sponsored Research at UCF. He has a Master’s degree in Public Administration from UCF.
