International Collaboration Incentive grant eligibility and application Information

The Office of International Programs announces eligibility and application deadline information for the International Collaboration Incentive grant program. This incentive grant recognizes K-State faculty and instructors who have collaborated with an international partner for the first time during the most recent full 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 instructors who are contributing to our international profile as outlined in K-State 2025," said Marcellus Caldas, assistant provost for international faculty collaboration and educational programs. The award was designed by 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, 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 other form of 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.


For specific criteria regarding recognition eligibility: faculty status is as defined in the University Handbook. (University Handbook Section C.)

The nomination is for a faculty that published (or developed a creative work) for the first time in international collaboration, and not for a publication (or creative work) developed for the first time with a new international collaborator.

If the publication includes many K-State authors, the recognition goes to the first K-State author that is publishing for the first time in an international collaboration.

The contribution had to be published (or developed) between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 of the most recent full calendar year (i.e. if this nomination happened in the year 2020, work needed to be developed or published during calendar year 2019)

An author's contribution while affiliated to another institution does not fit these recognition criteria. The nominee must be an active faculty member at the time of the recognition ceremony to receive this recognition

Proposal guidelines:

The relevant department head or unit director nominates the candidate by submitting a letter certifying the accomplishment.

Only one submission per person allowed.

Nominations should be submitted each year to  by 5 p.m. September 30th.

This incentive recognition will be presented at the International Education Awards Ceremony in November, during the annual International Education Week that takes place annually during the first first full week after November 11th.
