Last call for International Incentive Grant proposals

By Mary Pyle

Last call! The international programs office reminds faculty and staff that the deadline for International Incentive Grant proposals is 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7. The total award amount for this round of grant proposals is $25,000

The primary purpose of the International Incentive Grant program is to promote the internationalization of Kansas State University. Proposals should fall into one or more of the following broad categories:

  • Incorporation of global perspectives or components into curriculum or campus programs, including bringing international visitors or lectures to K-State
  • Development of global learning opportunities, including study abroad courses or internship programs with companies or partner universities overseas, and
  • International research or teaching, including organizing international workshops and conferences and planning visits to initiate collaborative research or teaching.

Grant applications for activities that are likely to have a significant impact on international education at Kansas State University will be favorably evaluated. The majority of individual grants will fall into the range of $1,000 to $3,000; joint proposals may have a higher upper limit.

Due to the breadth of programming that this International Incentive Grant program encompasses, we encourage all Kansas State University faculty members to consider submitting a proposal. Individual and joint grant proposals will be considered. Awardees will be notified no later than Feb. 20.

For more detailed information about the International Incentive Grant program, including submission criteria and information about previous awards, please refer to the website or contact Barbara Lippman in the international programs office at 785-532-5498 or oip@k-state.edu.

“I am recently back from my trip to Costa Rica, which was funded by my International Incentive award from last year. The trip was absolutely incredible! Now I need to get started analyzing our samples. One location of our field work was the crater of Poas volcano. I am so grateful for this opportunity!

Thank you,
