Recognition for international collaboration

Submitted by Marcellus Caldas

The Office of International Programs calls for nominations for its International Collaboration Awards.

The awards recognize K-State faculty and instructors who have collaborated with an international partner for the first time during the 2020 calendar year. Awards of $1,000 will be granted to K-State faculty and instructors fitting the criteria.

"International collaboration in the form of co-publication or joint scholarly activity is a critical component of the international outlook of an institution and the Office of International Programs wants to recognize the achievements of our faculty and instructor," said Marcellus Caldas, assistant provost for international faculty collaboration and educational programs. "We are excited by this opportunity to support those K-State faculty and instructors who are contributing to our international profile as outlined in K-State 2025." 

The award was designed by the Office of International Programs and the College International Advisory Committee that consists of one representative of each college and major unit on campus.

Award eligibility:
K-State tenured and tenure-track faculty or instructors with a regular contract who had their first career publication in peer review journals, book chapters, books or creative work — movies, video, photography, plays, among others forms scholarly activities — in collaboration with one or more faculty member(s) or researcher(s) with a permanent position in a foreign institution as a primary institutional affiliation.
