The Institute for Global Studies through a Title VI grant in International Studies from the US Department of Education welcomes the opportunity to support faculty interested in developing new international courses or adding international content to existing courses.
Please contact the Klaas van der Sanden at email@example.com at anytime to discuss this opportunity.
Target themes for the four-year grant cycle
2010-2013 International Human Rights
2011-2014 Health & Society in a Global Context
2010-2013 Islamic Societies and Cultures
2012-2014 Food & Security in a Globalized Economy
Please think creatively about these themes as they are all intended to be interpreted broadly and relative to many disciplines. Any inquiry about course development is welcome as funds not expended in the previous year may still be available.
Contact us to discuss any idea you may have as we work to support curriculum development on campus.
The Institute for Global Studies supports and sponsors a limited number of research initiatives and scholarly events. Typically, we support faculty driven research interventions on inter- and cross-disciplinary themes and topics that have significant international content and that allow faculty members from a variety of departments to come together to explore scholarly collaborations. These projects serve to foster and facilitate intellectual community building among faculty members and aim at exploring, formulating, and consolidating research projects to prepare them for external funding requests.
The support offered by IGS consists of administrative and logistical assistance and modest financial support for events and activities (workshops, work-in-progress groups, seminars, lectures, performances, reading groups, symposia, et cetera). The funds come from an international studies Title VI grant from the US Department of Education. Any and all IGS support is subject to the rules and regulations mandated by the grant and is limited to allowable expenses under those rules.
There is no formal application process for Research Initiative funding. Interested faculty members should send a short email describing the project to Klaas van der Sanden at firstname.lastname@example.org. He can also provide more information and/or explain funding restrictions.
