Community College Internationalization Fellowship

community college partnership

The goal of the Community College Internationalization Fellowship Program is to encourage Community College faculty to collaborate with Cornell University’s area studies programs and the South Asia Center at Syracuse University to create and implement curricular projects which integrate international, intercultural or global dimensions, and world languages, into community college curriculum. We aim to increase global learning, intercultural knowledge and competence of students at community colleges. These projects could include a new course, a new unit of an existing course, or a service learning component to an existing course that encourages the exchange of diverse perspectives.

Each project must engage with one or more specific world areas. To meet our funding agency’s requirements, projects which engage with Latin America, South Asia or Southeast Asia will be given preference and greater curricular development support.

These projects will be implemented over the course of one year, with the possibility of an extension of a second year if the project warrants further development. Over the course of the first year, the outreach coordinator will support Fellows by facilitating administrative support, in-person and virtual meetings, and content area resources needed in order to be successful. Individual projects will be funded as follows:

$500 for development at the start of the project, and $500 for implementation upon completion.
