Awards and Grants for Faculty

2016-2017 awards for curriculum internationalization: applications now open

The Institute for Global Engagement would like to invite applications for two awards open to all faculty at SUNY Oswego:

 

  1. Internationalization Course Redesign Award: $500 (5 awards per year)

  2. Global Engagement Guest Speaker Grant: $250 (5 awards per year)

 

Please read the details and application instructions below. Faculty can apply for only one of the two awards during the same year. For any questions, contact Dr. Ulises Mejias, Director of IGE (ulises.mejias@oswego.edu).

 

 

1. Internationalization Course Redesign Award

 

Amount: $500

Application Deadline: May 30, 2016

Award notification: September 12, 2016

Selection process: Review by IGE committee

Application: Please submit this online form: http://goo.gl/forms/I4yAfxhv8C

 

Description:

 

Five awards of $500 each are available for the purpose of redesigning an existing course by incorporating global or international dimensions, theoretical perspectives, case studies or information. All courses from all departments are eligible with the exception of courses receiving COIL funding. The course must already be in the course catalog (i.e., the course must not be a new course under development), and faculty must be able to confirm that their department intends to offer the course at least once in the next two years. All faculty teaching at SUNY Oswego can apply. Priority may be given to courses that are taught more frequently, that are Gen Ed courses, and/or that have high enrollments.

 

By accepting this stipend, faculty commit to attending a workshop in the Fall semester on internationalizing course content, sponsored by IGE. During the workshop, faculty will produce a revised course syllabus. Faculty will be responsible for presenting and discussing the revised syllabus within their respective departments. If the changes require that the course proposal be updated, the faculty will also be responsible for getting the proposal approved by the corresponding departmental and college curriculum committees (all during the Fall semester). The revised course will receive a special section designation to indicate the course has been internationalized. Finally, the faculty agree to participate in an assessment of the redesigned course after it has been offered, and to prepare a short report about the experience.  



2. Global Engagement Guest Speaker Grant

 

Amount: $250

Application Deadline: May 30, 2016

Award notification: September 12, 2016

Selection process: Review by IGE committee

Application: Please submit this online form: http://goo.gl/forms/IbgWiuHBGv

 

Five grants of $250 each are available for the purpose of hosting a guest speaker in a class taught in Fall 2016 or Spring 2017. The purpose of the visit must be to introduce or enhance global perspectives in the course content. This grant is intended to be an honorarium paid directly to the speaker to help defray travel costs, or simply to compensate them for their time.

 

Courses from all departments are eligible, with the exception of courses receiving COIL funding. All faculty teaching at SUNY Oswego can apply. The guest speaker would preferably visit the campus in person, but he or she can also attend via synchronous or asynchronous telepresence (video chat, participation in online forum, etc). Synchronous visits would preferably take place during class time, but they could also take place outside of class time at an event supervised by the faculty and which students in the course are required to attend. Faculty will also be encouraged to open the event to the larger public (reserving a large room if necessary).  


All details concerning speaker selection and scheduling of visit are the responsibility of the faculty. The guest speaker can be a non-US citizen visiting the US, or a US citizen with expertise in global issues who can introduce global perspectives into the course. Speakers could include scholars, activists, diplomats, state employees, artists, scientists, etc. Priority may be given to proposals that already identify a specific individual as the speaker; however, proposals where faculty have identified a category of speaker but have yet to identify an individual will also be considered.
