This summary includes:
● Names of Proposers
● Emails of Proposers
● Institutions of Proposers
● Project title
● Amount Requested
● Abstract (~250 words)
The narrative should be no longer than five (5) pages and should address:
What are the project’s goals? In what ways does the proposed work extend the faculty member’s work internationally?
Does the project include faculty members from Alliance schools with the requisite expertise to help the proposer achieve the project’s objectives? If students are included, what is their role and is their involvement meaningful?
Is the project practical and cost effective?
By what means will you determine if the project’s goals have been met? If appropriate, what plans are there for the dissemination of the results or outcomes of the project?
Proposers must provide a reasonable budget that is aligned with the project’s goals and plan of action. GLCA faculty members may request support for travel, up to four weeks of summer stipend ($600/week), and a small amount for materials (books, videos, etc.). The budget may include a line to cover 7.65% for the employer paid portion of FICA/Medicare on stipends.
Equipment will not be funded. Support for GLCA students includes travel and up to four weeks of summer stipend ($340/week). A summer stipend for a faculty member from a non-U.S. Alliance school can be included, but must be spread across both instructors for a total of no more than four weeks. For example, the U.S. and non-U.S. course partners could each receive two weeks of stipend.
Please submit a cv for all project participants.

Proposals will be reviewed using the process that was applied to proposals to the New Directions Initiative and to the Expanding Collaborations program; that is, proposals will be reviewed by GLCA staff with a recommendation made to the GLCA chief academic officers for approval.
Projects funded through the Global Crossroads Initiative require an end-of-project report. Each report should describe project outcomes in relation to project goals and provide an accounting of how funds have been spent. Reports should be sent to Simon Gray, the Global Alliance program officer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
