Creating a Global Study Course

Applications are submitted to the department for approval prior to being submitted to the Global Center for review by the Global Faculty Committee.

SOLES Global Faculty Grant Application

The purpose of the SOLES Global Faculty Grants program is to help SOLES internationalize the curriculum by promoting collaborative research and teaching on international themes and/or by exposing faculty to different cultures and languages. The committee will evaluate proposals on the strength of their connection to SOLES’ internationalization goals and to the perceived benefit towards increasing faculty members' research programs, teaching or language fluency.
