Through Global Course Connections, 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 or the conclusion of the course’s academic term. Content of the off-campus field component 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.
Through Global Intercultural Experience for Undergraduates, faculty may apply to lead small groups of undergraduates on short-term projects (3 or 4 weeks) of a global nature at field sites, both domestic and abroad. Field component must occur May-Aug. CGIS will provide funding to support each selected proposal. Selected faculty members will be named GIEU Teaching Fellows and will receive funding to support on-site student and central expenses, as well as a $5,000 stipend (per site) in addition to the full costs of their own travel, meals, lodging, and teaching materials.
