A New Round of Grants are Available.
Grants Available for
Africa, East Asia, Europe, Slavic, Eurasian and East European countries, or the Middle East.
Grants also available for projects
covering multiple world areas.
Proposals Due March 31, 2014.
In collaboration with UNC and Duke’s National Resource Centers, World View is facilitating grants to community college educators to create international modules for their courses. Our intention is to support the addition of international content to existing courses that have little or no such content. Preference will be given to proposals that develop regularly taught and/or required courses. A module is a self-contained unit that is integrated into the course to add an international component. A module is composed of instructional units, student projects, and learning objects that infuse international content, context, and connections into the course.
Over 90 grants have been awarded to North Carolina community college instructors to date. Each grantee receives up to $750 to support module creation and a trip to UNC at Chapel Hill for research. At UNC they work with librarians and faculty arranged by World View.
There will be separate grant competitions for modules covering the following areas:
- Any area of the world or a combination of several areas or countries (Center for Global Initiatives)
- East Asia (Asian/Pacific Studies Institute)
- Europe and the European Union (Center for European Studies/ EU Center of Excellence)
- Slavic, Eurasian and East European countries (Center for Slavic, Eurasian, & East European Studies)
- Middle East and Muslim civilizations (Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies)
