International programs office accepting fall 2014 international incentive grant proposals

Submitted by Mary K Pyle

The international programs office is accepting international incentive grant proposals for fall 2014. The primary 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.

The newest category added to the grant proposals is the Experimental Short-term Co-Teaching International Incentive Grant.

"We are excited to add this new category for the fall to expand opportunities for our faculty to consider additional international opportunities in their classroom and abroad," said Marcelo Sabates, associate provost, office of international programs.

Proposal categories:

a) International Faculty Collaborations and Partnership Building Incentive Grant

  • International research/teaching, including organizing international workshops and conferences and planning visits to initiate collaborative research/teaching and/or institutional partnerships.
  • Incorporation of global perspectives/components into curriculum or campus programs, including bringing international visitors/lectures to K-State

b) International Global Learning Opportunities Grant

  • Development of global learning opportunities, including study abroad courses and/or internship programs with companies or partner universities overseas

c) Experimental Short-term Co-Teaching International Incentive Grant

  • Short-term — two to three weeks — co-teaching experiences with partner institutions in which a segment of a syllabus will be shared by courses in both institutions via technology.

Grant proposal 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 between 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.

Award application deadline is 5 p.m. Sept. 15. Awardees will be notified no later than Oct. 5.
