The Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs is accepting proposals for 2018 Internationalizing the Cornell Curriculum grants. It marks the fourth year of the grant program, which is designed to enhance the internationalization of the undergraduate student experience. A total of $200,000 is available to be allocated in this round of grants, and proposals are due Feb. 12, 2018.
The grant program emphasizes rigorous, innovative approaches in teaching, learning and research that strengthen international content and cross-cultural competence in the undergraduate curriculum.
Faculty members can attend one of two Internationalizing the Cornell Curriculum grant program information sessions offered in collaboration with the Center for Teaching Innovation: Thursday, Dec. 14, and Tuesday, Jan. 23, both held noon to 1 p.m. in G-08 Uris Hall. Each session will offer an opportunity to ask questions, hear tips for writing a successful proposal, review a previous successfully funded proposal, and brainstorm project scope and ideas.
In the first three years of the program, grants were awarded to 80 faculty members working on 48 projects with community partners in countries across the world.
The Global Cornell website includes complete information about the grant program, including application information and lists of previous grant awardees.
Internationalizing the Cornell Curriculum grants are administered by the Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs with support from the Internationalization Council.
