The Office of International Programs announces the 2018 - 2019 Faculty Internationalization Grants competition. This program will provide seed grants to individual faculty or small faculty groups representing academic programs to increase internationalization at Auburn. These seed funds are to be used to develop new programs and collaborations that will be integrated into departmental curricula or research portfolios. Proposals from faculty are invited in the following categories:
Priority will be given to faculty, departments and programs that do not yet have established collaborations overseas. Faculty seeking awards for internationalizing their research/scholarship should develop travel in collaboration with their departmental colleagues, heads and college/school academic leadership, focusing on geographic or thematic areas important to their unit. OIP may solicit input from the school/college of the proposer(s) to ensure alignment with larger unit goals and ongoing efforts. Grants will not be awarded for the development of study abroad or exchange programs this year.
Awards will be in the range of $5000 and can be used for international travel to establish academic or research programing and program logistics. Grant funds must be used by September 1, 2019 or the award will be forfeited.
Proposals should not exceed two pages and should be submitted by December 3, 2018 to Jenn Mason, director of international initiatives, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A proposal should include:
