International Incentive Grants
Associate Provost Marcelo Sabatés has announced the Call for International Incentive Grant Proposals. The total award amount for each round of International Incentive Grant proposals is $25,000.
The primary purpose of the International Incentive Grants is to promote the internationalization
of the university.
The International Incentive Grants are supported jointly by the Office of the Provost and the Office of International Programs.
It is expected that grant funds will be available on a continuing basis, with the amounts listed below available for the upcoming year.
Available for January through June: $25,000*
Available for June through December: $25,000*
The majority of individual grants will fall into the range of $1000-3000. Individual grants are typically limited to a maximum of $3000.
Group applications should be submitted by one individual whom the group has recognized to serve as the “lead” for the grant application. This person will be responsible for determining the allocation of any funding awarded for the program.
Group grants are typically limited to a maximum of $4000.
* Note: If funds remain at the end of a semester, the College International Advisory
Council (CIAC) may elect to honor outstanding requests for support submitted after
the above deadlines, or provide additional support to applications already approved,
or rollover the funds to the following semester.
DEADLINES FOR APPLICATIONS:
For proposals regarding activities/travel beginning January through June:

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR APPLICANTS PRIOR TO APPLICATION:
Applicants are expected to seek funding from their departments/units prior to applying, and should describe these efforts in the International Incentive Grant proposal .
Follow instructions as indicated on the The International Incentive Grant Proposal Guideline.
Proposals should fall into one or more of the following broad categories:
- Incorporation of global perspectives/components into curriculum or campus program(s), including bringing international visitors/lectures to K-State
- Development of global learning opportunities, including study abroad courses and/or internship programs with companies or partner universities overseas
- International research/teaching, including organizing international workshops and conferences, and planning visits to initiate collaborative research/teaching
- Grant applications for activities that are likely to have a significant impact on international education at Kansas State University will be favorably evaluated.
Funding will not be approved in some cases, for example:
- Attendance at conferences not involving presentations or organizational responsibility by the grant applicant will not be supported by this grant.
Following conclusion of the grant event or experience, successful applicants is required
to submit a short written report describing the grant activity and analyzing its success
in the eyes of the grantee. This report should be submitted within four weeks after
the conclusion of the event being funded.
Proposals must be submitted electronically to email@example.com, along with all supporting documentation noted in the Guideline, by the deadlines posted above in order to be considered.
Late applications will not be considered unless the CIAC chooses to make an exception.
It is strongly recommended that applicants who have received prior International Incentive Grant funding clearly identify in subsequent applications how their previous grant activities contributed to the internationalization of the institution.
