DESCRIPTION

 

The purpose of the International Partnership Development Grant is to encourage and support the development of GVSU’s existing international partnerships at the institutional, college, and departmental levels. There is limited funding each year to support interests across campus. Priority will be given to applications that will directly benefit students through the creation of new opportunities.

 

Proposals of interest include:

  • Creation of dual-degree programs;
  • Creation of joint research projects involving students;
  • Creation or revision of a study abroad curriculum integration plan;
  • Creation of joint online courses with faculty and students from a partner university;
  • Developing an on-going, reciprocal faculty teaching exchange with a partner university;

ELIGIBILITY

  1. All grant applications must show support and approval from the appropriate department head and dean. 
  2. Faculty members involved in the grant request must be regular tenured or tenure-track faculty at GVSU.
  3. The unit/college must be willing to share the costs for college and departmental-level partnerships. 
  4. The unit/college must be willing to facilitate faculty participation in the partnership development process. The most successful proposals involve a number of colleagues who have an interest in working together on new initiatives.

The International Partnership Development Grant will not be available to single individuals interested in doing a site-visit to a partner institution.  This grant is available for collaborative efforts supporting the development of international partnership activities. Grants will be awarded to a particular department or college for use in program development.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until funding has been depleted. Applications should be submitted via email to: Rebecca Hambleton, Director of Study Abroad and International Exchanges.
