Office of Internationalization Grants
The Office of Internationalization awards two grants each year. The Advancing Intercultural Capacities Grant and the Award Package Pathway Preparation Grant in conjunction with the other members of the Academic Support Offices.
The Advancing Intercultural Capacity Grant is open to full-time (individual) faculty (or team) who aim to elevate intercultural capacity building (Internationalization at Home/IaH) in the formal or informal curriculum *in collaboration with community members/community organizations.
Funds may be used for internationalizing the curriculum (in some broad capacity) and/or to advance informal learning and intercultural/cross-cultural knowledge-sharing initiatives.
The overarching purpose of this grant is to serve as seed funding to launch/support an initiative aimed at Advancing Intercultural Capacity and Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in the Werklund School of Education and to lay the foundation to apply for more substantial university and external grants related to EDI. This grant itself needs to be impactful and innovative in support of advancing intercultural capacity and equity, diversity, and inclusion beyond the individual research agenda(s) of the applicant(s).
