Deadline nearing for international incentive grant program proposals
Proposals for the international incentive grant program for activities/travel between January and June 2013 are due by 5 p.m. Sept. 1. 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/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. 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. Awards will be announced in late September.
