STELLA – Staff 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. By offering to host a visitor, higher education institutions commit to cover accommodations for one week for the visitor. CONAHEC member institutions will need to fill out an electronic offer form by Thursday, December 13th, 2018.

    • When you submit the offer, and if your institution is NOT an independent member of the Compostela Group of Universities, please make sure to mention that you are submitting an offer as part of the CONAHEC consortium. You can do that by writing the name of your institution in the following way "NAME OF INSTITUTION (through the CONAHEC consortium)"

    • After submitting the application, please send an e-mail to Santiago Castiello ( to let us know that your institution will be offering a space.

  • Early in 2019, 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 February 14th, 2019.

  • Intercontinental mobility of selected participants should be initiated in the fall of 2019.

  • 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.
