This grant is intended to support and encourage faculty international research and pedagogy. The grant is applicable only to participation in one CIEE international faculty seminar in the summer of 2014. Funds must be applied toward the seminar CIEE member registration fee and related expenses up to $4,000. Note that the registration fee does not cover airfare, most dinners, and numerous other incidental expenses. Faculty should check the CIEE website for specific information regarding covered and non-covered expenses as well as for information about other potential funding opportunities to cover the remaining costs of the seminar.
Criteria for Evaluation of Grant Applications/Proposals
In assessing applications, the grant committee will first consider the excellence of the proposals. When proposals are comparably meritorious, the committee will give preference to proposals that enhance faculty expertise in a part of the world or with regard to a global issue underrepresented or underdeveloped in the Gustavus curriculum and/or proposals
from faculty members who have limited international experience.
Grant applications will be evaluated by a committee consisting of a KCEL Faculty Associate, a member of the Faculty Development Committee, a representative of the CICE, and the KCEL Director.
Note: Once a proposal has been supported through this grant, the faculty member must also apply for seminar registration through CIEE as soon as possible. Seminar applications to CIEE are accepted in the order that they are received. The deadline for applications to CIEE is March 1, 2014.
