Do you have a new area of teaching or research that you'd like to explore? Would this extend the global reach of your current research or teaching? If so, then you should consider applying for the New Directions in Global Scholarship Award.
This program seeks to create a greatly expanded set of resources and access to expertise that exists beyond the proposer’s home institution. Collaboration should be with faculty (and possibly students) from one or more consortium partner institutions – GLCA colleges plus the international institutions of the Global Alliance. Collaboration with a non-Alliance institution is acceptable when there are at least two Alliance schools also involved.
Proposals involving the humanities and the non-empirical social sciences are of special interest, as are collaborative initiatives in any discipline that deepen and extend knowledge and inclusion of global topics across the consortium.
Proposals from the sciences must involve issues of significant societal concern and will likely be interdisciplinary in character.
