STELLA: Staff Intercontinental Mobility Program

The Consortium for North American Higher Education Collaboration (CONAHEC) in partnership with the Compostela Group of Universities would like to invite CONAHEC member institutions to participate in the STELLA-Staff Mobility Program.

The STELLA-Staff Mobility Program is designed for non-academic staff to participate in intercontinental mobility during one or two weeks. This great intercontinental exchange program provides administrative staff the opportunity to meet with colleagues in other countries who conduct similar work, enhance cross-cultural experiences and share best practices.

How does it work?

  • Interested higher education institutions need to host at least one visitor in one of their department/services areas for one week in order to participate
  • CONAHEC member institutions will need to fill out an electronic offer form by January 17, 2020 (12:00 PM GMT).
    • After submitting the application, please send an e-mail to Santiago Castiello ( to let us know that your institution will be offering a space.
  • During February 2020 a list of spaces will be published on CGU's website.
  • Only staff from institutions who are offering to host will be able to submit an application to participate. The deadline to submit an application is 29 February 2020 (12:00 PM GMT).
  • Intercontinental mobility of selected participants should be initiated in the fall of 2020
  • Participants will need to send a candidate report form summarizing their experience after their visit. 
  • Please note that CONAHEC member institutions that are not part of the Compostela Group of Universities are NOT eligible for the travel grant so the sending institution or the participants themselves are responsible for covering all expenses not included by the host institution.
