California Community College International Curriculum Development Grants - 2019-2020
Curriculum Development Mini-grants for internationalizing curriculum in California community colleges
Open to California community college faculty. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education and awarded by the UCLA Center for Near Eastern Studies, these grants are designed to support internationalization of curriculum at the community college level. Funding is available to faculty in all disciplines to create a new course or enhancements for an existing course to introduce international topics or perspective into the curriculum at your community college. Priority will be given to projects related to the Middle East and North Africa, though all world areas are eligible for consideration. Awards consist of a $1,000 stipend and access to the UCLA Library collections.
Applicants are required to submit a proposal describing:
- The new course or innovative course material to be developed.
- The country or world area to be addressed.
- The international topic or approach.
- How the international unit will expand or enhance curriculum offerings at your institution.
- How the new curriculum will reflect diverse perspectives.
- How the new curriculum will provide students opportunities to become more informed and prepared for future careers in areas such as education, business, and the non-profit sectors.
Include the course title and number and the term that the course will be taught. A CV, budget and letter of endorsement (from department chair or dean) are also required.
Projects must be completed by May, 2020, and a final syllabus or lesson plan must be submitted, along with a two-page statement which summarizes your research findings and outlines how your grant project enhanced your teaching by 7/1/20.
