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 send an offer form (both, complete and stamped) to Gabriela Valdez ( by Tuesday, March 27, 2018.
  • After the list of spaces is published, institutions’ coordinators will collect applications from staff. By April 20, 2018, coordinators from participating institutions will select a maximum of 2 applicants from their institution and email the application form, CV, Certification/confirmation of employment and copy of ID or passport to Gabriela Valdez (
  • The final list of selected participants is announced no later than  June 29, 2018.
  • Selected participants have to confirm their participation within 20 calendar days from the day they are notified. 
  • Intercontinental mobility of selected participants should be initiated in the current 2018 year.
  • 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.
