The GSC Engaged Learning grants encourage faculty to devise innovative projects for engaged student learning in global studies. GSC will award engaged learning grants to faculty members who conceive projects that involve students in innovative learning experiences outside the classroom (whether as part of a course or through independent programs, internships, etc.). These experiences might include trips, research projects, simulations, competitions, internships, community-engaged learning opportunities, or work on other programs or projects that engage students in nontraditional ways of learning about the global.

Full-time and part-time tenure- and appointment-stream faculty affiliates may apply for a maximum of $1,500 per grant.
