CGS Curriculum Development Grants for UW faculty 

The Center for Global Studies invites applications for Course Development Grants in order to 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.  Preference will also be given to course proposals that incorporate collaborative online learning (COIL), utilize innovative teaching methods (flipped classroom, digital and online learning tools), and connect with less commonly taught language (LCTL) courses.

Faculty from all disciplines and campuses of UW are encouraged to apply. The amount per award is usually $2,000.  Faculty may submit more than one application.
