Last call for Office of International Programs International Incentive Grants submissions

By Mary K. Pyle

The Office of International Programs is still accepting international incentive grant proposals for fall 2014. The award application deadline is 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 15.

The 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 $35,000 — an increase of $10,000 from past years.

Previous award winners have the following to say about the success of their opportunities:

• "The Faculty Incentive Grant that supported our study made our conference presentation, 2014 Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians annual meeting, and publication, Journal of Zoo and Wildlife Medicine, possible. This will not only benefit veterinarians and the target species, but it will further demonstrate our expertise in designing and conducting advanced research studies on wildlife and zoological species. Also, collaboration with researchers from other countries contributes to local veterinarians, exchange of knowledge and generates more projects for future work. I would like to thank OIP for this opportunity." — David Eshar, assistant professor of exotic and zoological medicine service in the College of Veterinary Medicine

• "Thanks to the International Incentive Grant, I traveled to Miami in February to attend the First International Meeting on Foreign Language Learning In Tandem: Past, Present, And Future at the University of Miami. After seven years of collaboration, coordinating a Teletandem, Skype language partners, exchange for our students, I finally met my colleague, Adelia Peña Clavel of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. We co-presented at the conference, Autonomy and Community: Two Perspectives on the UNAM-KSU Skype Partnership, which was well received, and we are thinking about collaborating on another paper in the future.
Thank you again for this opportunity." — Laura Kanost, associate professor of Spanish in the modern languages department and editor for Studies in Twentieth and Twenty-First Century Literature

• "I am recently back from my trip to Costa Rica, which was funded by my International Incentives award from last year. The trip was absolutely incredible! Now I need to get started analyzing our samples!" — Matthew F. Kirk, assistant professor in the geology department
