Now Accepting Proposals from College Faculty: Asian and Global Studies Course Development Grants

July 7, 2020

The University of Washington’s Asian Studies and Global Studies Centers seek proposals from Community College full-time, part-time, and adjunct faculty for new course development, revision of an existing course, or creation of a new course module, all to be taught at their current institution. Faculty from all disciplines are welcome to apply.

Award Categories:

  • Development of new module to an existing course: up to $2,000
  • Complete revision of an existing course: up to $3,000
  • Development of a new course: up to $4,000

This year’s competition prioritizes proposals that emphasize concrete strategies and plans to address inclusion, equity, and accessibility in a course. Given the recent effects of the global pandemic on teaching, we will particularly privilege courses that: demonstrate modularity with respect to online learning and technologies; have built-in adaptability to transition to an online environment; and include a plan to take a course completely online, whether synchronously or asynchronously taught.

Successful applicants will receive the award upon delivery of a revised or new syllabus or module plan and confirmation of when the course will be taught. Winning syllabi will be posted online and student evaluations will be required after the course is taught.
