International Collaboration Recognition Program eligibility and application Information:

The Office of International Programs (OIP) announces eligibility and application deadline information for the International Collaboration Recognition Program. This recognizes K-State faculty and instructors who have collaborated with an international partner for the first time during the most recent full calendar year. In recognition, $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 assisting us being Next Gen K-State," said Grant Chapman, Associate Provost for International Programs.

This recognition program was designed by OIP and the former College International Advisory Committee (CIAC) that consisted of one representative of each college and major unit on campus.

Recognition 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 forms 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 2023, work needed to be developed or published during calendar year 2022)
  • 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 in November.
