Call for Applications! 

2016 Global and Area Studies Summer Research Lab at Illinois

The Center for Global Studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, is pleased to announce fellowships and development grants to support the internationalization of community colleges nationwide. We invite applications from faculty, librarians, and administrators interested in expanding global studies curricula, instruction in less commonly taught languages, library collections or international education programs at their home institutions. Fellows will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with international and area studies reference librarians and explore the unlimited print and online resources of the University of Illinois Library.

Now that this opportunity is available for community college faculty, librarians, and administrators, the Center for Global Studies would like to ask for your assistance in publicizing this call for applications. Our center would greatly appreciate if you could forward this announcement to interested parties through your institution's resource pages, newsletters, social media outlets and listservs.

The 2016 Global and Area Studies Summer Lab is open from July 18 until July 29. Fellowships will cover travel, housing, and parking costs and a research honorarium for select participants. Participants will be eligible to receive subsequent development grants. For more information on awards, eligibility, and instructions to apply, visit our website. 

The Center for Global Studies partners with the Russian, East European, and Eurasian Center (REEEC) to promote the internationalization of community college curricula. Follow this link for more information on fellowships and the Summer Research Lab at REEEC. Participants in the two programs will be invited to share their work and establish collaborations in a joint workshop on July 22

To be considered for full funding, please submit an online application by May 2, 2016.

Applications will be accepted until May 17, 2016.

Are you interested in exchanging ideas on international partnerships and engagements with representatives of higher education from around the world? Participate in the Conference on Global Collaboration in Higher Education at Illinois, August 1-2, 2016. Additional funding may be available for Summer Lab participants.

This program is made possible by generous funds from the U.S. Department of Education Title VI Program and co-sponsorships from the Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies and the Center for South Asian and Middle Eastern Studies.
