California community college faculty grants for innovative curriculum design, integrating international and global dimensions into community college courses.
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 perspectives and incorporate global dimensions into the curriculum at your community college. Priority will be given to projects that enhance understanding of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, though all world areas are eligible for consideration.
Awards consist of:
- A $1,000 stipend.
- Access to the UCLA Library collections.
Projects must be completed by the end of summer 2022, and a final syllabus or lesson plan must be submitted, along with a two-page statement that summarizes your research findings and innovative pedagogy, outlining how your grant project enhanced your teaching.
Applicants are required to submit a proposal describing:
- The new course or innovative course material to be developed.
- The country or world area to be addressed.
- The international topic or approach.
- How the international unit will expand or enhance curriculum offerings at your institution.
- How the new curriculum will reflect diverse perspectives.
- How the new curriculum will provide students opportunities to become more informed and prepared for future careers in areas such as education, business, and non-profit sectors.
Include the course title and number and the term the course will be taught. A CV, budget and letter of endorsement (from department chair or dean) are also required.
