The IFFTI Faculty Exchange Initiative is an honorarium scheme established to fund exchange visits between IFFTI member institutions or short visits by individuals to present or advise on specialist areas of fashion education. When considering possible exchanges, members should consider the potential issues that could arise due to language barriers and note that visits/exchange can take place within regions, as well as across continents.

Successful applicants will be asked to submit a written report (approx. 1500 words) to the IFFTI Secretariat which may be featured on the IFFTI website. The honorarium will be transferred to the individuals’ home institution upon receipt of the report.

Attached is the Faculty Exchange Initiative application form.

All applications should be submitted to Mr. Robert Ott as Chair of the Education Initiative Subcommittee. Please submit by email
to robert.ott@ryerson.ca
