Albion College has been awarded a multi-year (2018-2021) program development grant from the GLCA Global Crossroads - International Innovation Fund to support faculty/staff international education efforts with Global Liberal Arts Alliance partner institutions. This grant, entitled “Sustainable Communities: Albion and Abroad,” is part of a larger thematic vision and strategy for Albion College to help sustain our host community, and communities around the world, by forging sustainable local partnerships and global collaborations.
The International Collaboration Technology Quick Guide is available for those considering using technology to connect with international partner institutions.
Significant funds are available to be spent by May 2019, with continued funding possible between 2019 and 2021. Funding cannot be used for student travel or one-time projects, but may be awarded for faculty/staff international travel to GLAA campuses to develop international collaborative projects. Projects with an emphasis on international program development, embedded and cross-cultural team courses, development of student and faculty exchanges, and promotion of research collaborations will be prioritized. These Internationalization Grants can compliment FDS grant funds.
Effective proposals will address the following elements, and will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
