By Mary K Pyle

The international programs office is accepting international incentive grant proposals for the fall 2014 round, which includes a new category.

The primary purpose of the international incentive grants is to promote internationalization of Kansas State University. The total award amount for this round of grant proposals is $25,000.

The newest category added to the grant proposals is the Experimental Short-term Co-Teaching International Incentive Grant.

"We are excited to add this new category this semester to elevate and expand opportunities for our faculty to present international opportunities in the classroom and abroad," said Marcelo Sabates, associate provost, international programs office.

Proposal categories:

  • International Faculty Collaborations and Partnership Building Incentive Grant:

  • Experimental Short-term Co-Teaching International Incentive Grant:
    Short-term — 2-3 weeks — co-teaching experiences with partner institutions in which a segment of a syllabus will be shared by courses in both institutions.

Grant proposal 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.
