Global Course Connections
GCC Application Deadline: GCC applications are closed for 2014. Check back soon for 2015 deadlines!
Through GCC, faculty develop closer curricular integration between departmental course offerings and global study by submitting proposals for structured educational experiences off campus within the context of a semester-long course. Field component must occur during University breaks either in the middle of or at the conclusion of the course's academic term.
The off-campus field component's content may range from linguistic and cultural immersion to practical experiences and independent research. CGIS will provide $5,000 to $11,000 to support each selected proposal. Faculty members may also apply for an additional $2,000 CGIS development grant, allowing them to conduct a site visit prior to the project and/or to develop field-related course materials.
