CGS Course Development Grants

The Center for Global Studies invites applications for Course Development Grants that support new course development or major revision to existing courses in line with the funding priorities of our Title VI federal grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Preference will be given to new courses that focus on our grant priority areas of global literacy, security, environment, and/or global health.

CGS will also prioritize proposals that emphasize concrete strategies and plans to address inclusion, diversity, and accessibility in a course. Given the recent effects of the global pandemic on teaching, we are especially interested in courses that: 1) Demonstrate modularity with respect to online learning and technologies, and 2) Have built-in adaptability to transition between an online and in person environment, whether synchronously or asynchronously taught.

Eligibility and amount:

UW faculty at all levels from all disciplines and campuses of the University of Washington are encouraged to apply. The amount per award is usually between $1,500 – $2,000. Faculty may submit only one application.
