Grant competition announced

Spectrum Volume 21 Issue 05 - September 24, 1998

The fourth annual Internationalizing the Curriculum Mini-Grant competition is now under way.
Interested faculty applicants are encouraged to apply not later than the deadline date, Friday, Oct. 16. The purpose of the Internationalizing the Curriculum Mini-Grant fund is to provide assistance to faculty members for developing, implementing, and infusing courses with substantive international content. Applications in any curricular area, which address significant international issues, will be considered.
Emphasis is placed upon activities that focus on curriculum improvement and/or augmentation. All teaching faculty members are eligible to submit proposals and to receive awards. Proposals may focus upon either undergraduate or graduate instruction.
Grants will not exceed $1,500 for any single project. This will allow a maximum number of faculty members to be supported during the funding cycle. Awards will be contingent upon some level of matching departmental or college support.
Applicants should submit six copies of the application form to Dr. Patrick W. Carlton, Director for International Education, UOIP, 134 Burruss, Campus (0265); telephone: 1-6452; e-mail: carltonp@vt.edu.
Applicants are invited to discuss project ideas in advance with Carlton or with Terry Wildman, who can be reached at CEUT at 1-9109 or e-mail: wiley@vt.edu.
Recipients will be notified during the week of November 2. Recipients should plan to acknowledge the support of CEUT and UOIP in any reports concerning the project.
Grant recipients are expected to submit a final report to UOIP/CEUT upon completion of the project. Additionally, recipients may be asked to share their work with others in the university community via publications or public presentations.
