A funding opportunity for community college faculty.
The UCLA Asia Pacific Center and Latin American Institute announce a funding opportunity open to California community college faculty. With support from the U.S. Department of Education, these grants are designed to support internationalization of curriculum at the community college level. Funding is available to faculty in all disciplines to create a new course or enhancements for an existing course to introduce international topics or perspective into the curriculum at your community college. Priority will be given to projects related to Latin America or Asia, though all world areas are eligible for consideration.
Awards consist of:
- a stipend of up to $500 and travel expense reimbursement of up to $500 (total $1,000); and
- access to the UCLA Library collections.
The application deadline is April 14, 2017. Projects must be completed by August 25, 2017, and a final syllabus or lesson plan must be submitted, along with a two-page statement which summarizes your research findings and outlines how your work at UCLA enhanced your project.
Applicants are required to submit a proposal describing the course or course material to be developed, including the country or world area to be addressed, the international topic or approach, and how the international unit will expand or enhance curriculum offerings at your institution. Include the course title and number and the term that the course will be taught. A CV, budget and letter of endorsement (from department chair or dean) are also required.
