Faculty and Staff Travel Grants
The Global Center has limited funds to assist faculty and staff members with travel to present papers at academic conferences or for Center-related activities. Awards average $500 and can be used either for domestic or international travel.
For international travel, the Global Center must also receive permission from the U.S. Department of Education. Therefore, grant recipients must provide their travel information to the Global Center prior to ticket purchase and at least forty-five days in advance of departure. All flights must adhere to the Fly America Act and Open Skies agreements. Hotel costs must adhere to U.S. federal rates.
To apply for a Travel Grant, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org with the purpose of your travel, a brief budget outlining anticipated travel costs, and your planned itinerary. There is no formal application form, and applications are accepted and reviewed year round.
PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, the Global Center cannot provide Travel Grants to any students.
International Curriculum Development Grants
The Center for the Study of Global Change promotes curriculum internationalization and encourages the incorporation of global learning outcomes in teaching and learning. The Global Center offers a limited number of Curriculum Development Grants each year to develop new undergraduate or graduate courses or substantially revise existing courses to include significant international content. All faculty are eligible to apply, though projects which are broadly international and promote collaboration among professional schools, academic departments and/or area studies programs are particularly encouraged. Applications are accepted and reviewed year round.
The Global Center is also interested in supporting Language Across the Curriculum (LAC) courses, one-credit foreign language "trailers" that are taught in conjunction with courses in the Hamilton Lugar School, the College of Arts & Sciences, or the professional schools. Students in LAC courses read articles and discuss issues in a world language seminar, taught either by the course instructor or a graduate student. Please contact the Global Center for more information.
Guidelines for Proposals
- Applications should include a discussion of the proposed topic, whether it will involve more than one discipline, professional school and/or world area, the intended student level, when it is likely to be offered for the first time, who will teach the course, etc. Please discuss means of assessment of student global learning outcomes.
- Include applicant's current C.V. and a supporting letter from department or program chair.
- Include a budget if expenses will be incurred.
