The Collaborative for International Studies and Global Outreach (CISGO) is pleased to announce that a generous donor has created a grant to support junior faculty in the humanities (English, history, international languages and cultures, performing and fine arts, philosophy, theology) whose teaching and scholarship encompass international and intercultural topics. The donor desires that this grant honor the late Kate Regan, who was a tireless advocate for junior faculty.
Each year, one grant for $10,000 will be awarded to one junior faculty member in the humanities to support an internationally focused research project that contributes to the internationalization of the University of Portland by incorporating international perspectives into teaching or curricular development. The grant may be used as a stipend and to pay for international travel for research or scholarly collaboration with colleagues in other countries beyond the USA. Any portion of the grant used as a stipend will be subject to deduction of fringe benefits.
A complete announcement with specific requirements for the application, deadlines, and submission logistics can be found at this link.
Application materials, including a letter of support, are due on Tuesday, March 1, 2016. The executive committee of CISGO will review proposals and announce a grant recipient by April 1. The grant must be used in one year, beginning July 1, 2016.
