The South Asia Center seeks 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.
Two grant programs are currently open for applications: Asian and Global Studies Course Development Grants and Highline College Peer-to-Peer Course Development Grants.
Asian and Global Studies Course Development Grants, sponsored by SAC alongside the UW East Asia Center, Southeast Asia Center, and Center for Global Studies, supports the inclusion of Asian and/or global studies content in revised or new courses.
As part of our ongoing partnership with Highline College, Peer-to-Peer Course Development Grants support the development of new or revised South Asia Studies courses or modules (in any discipline) by Highline faculty in collaboration with UW faculty affiliated with SAC.
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.
- 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
The application deadline for both programs is Friday, August 28, at 11:59pm PDT.

Note: Highline College faculty whose course proposal focuses on South Asia Studies may be considered for both grant programs.
