ICC grants support rigorous, innovative approaches to teaching, learning, and research that integrate international and cross-cultural concepts into the undergraduate curriculum.

The program is now in its third year. A total of $250,000 is available.

This year's focus is “Global at Home,” said David R. Lee, provost's fellow for internationalization and a member of the grant review committee. “Proposed projects should be on-campus initiatives that expose students to the breadth of cultures and languages, and expand their exposure to, and familiarity with, global issues and diverse international perspectives.”

The Global Cornell website includes complete information about the program, including the RFP, application information, and lists of awardees for 2016 and 2015.

Interested faculty are also invited to attend the ICC Proposal Writing Workshop and Information Session, on Monday, December 12, 2016, from 12 noon to 2 p.m., in G08 Uris Hall. During this session, the RFP will be outlined and discussed, faculty can share and brainstorm project ideas, tips for writing a successful proposal will be provided, and there will be time for questions and answers.

ICC grants are administered by the Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs, the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, and Cornell Abroad, with support from the Internationalization Council.
