Call for proposals for 2025-2026
The Center for Global Studies aims to raise UW’s international profile for its outstanding research and creative activity by encouraging and supporting international conferences to be held at the University of Wyoming. To that end, we have developed a seed/planning grant program. Apply now for funding to support a conference in FY26 (Fall 2025 - Spring 2026). The funding will be available to you in the year of your conference, and will enable you to launch your planning or your conference bid this year.
Application Deadline: January 15, 2024
Multiple opportunities are available for funding through the Office of Research & Economic Development. You can view their ongoing reasearch and initiatives on their main page, and also explore funding options their current funding opportunities page.
FACULTY AND STAFF INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH GRANT
The Center for Global Studies invites grant applications to support projects that advance international research, creativity, and engagement. Awards are up to $5000, and may be sought for research outside the U.S., collaboration with a current or prospective UW international partner institution, or research focused on international topics relevant to UW and the state of Wyoming. Awards under this FIRST call for AY 2023-2024 must be expended by the end of May 2024.
Awards are made possible by CGS donors and the UW Office for Research and Economic Development.
Other factors include the extent to which the project:
1) enhances UW’s international reputation and global standing;
2) advances internationalization and the university’s strategic goals;
3) exhibits potential to expand UW’s international research and engagement portfolio;
4) advances interdisciplinary collaboration;
5) may persist beyond this initial funding;
6) can be leveraged for future external funding support.
Unless explicitly related to the research project, participation in international conferences, seminars, symposia, and related professional development opportunities will not be considered.
All grant funds must be expended by the end of May 2024, and cannot be deferred. Travel may occur after this date, but awards must be expended and processed in advance. Cash advances may only be requested if all travel is complete by May 31, and are strongly discouraged.
October 13, 2023, at 5 pm: Applications due.
Early November: Award notifications will be sent.
Questions, applications, and supporting materials should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please access and submit the application via the InfoReady Portal:
Our call for proposals is now open for the opportunity to teach in the UW in Scotland program. Applicants are invited to submit proposals to teach during the summer in 2025.
In successive years, pairs of UW faculty from different disciplines, and who have trained in the varied resources and transdisciplinary methods of the Abbotsford cohort, develop and teach a summer program in Scotland. Their courses typically have a first footprint at Walter Scott’s house, Abbotsford, in the Scottish Borders, then move on to other locations across the country. Courses embrace the varied resources of the region through transdisciplinary teaching.
Previous courses have included:
Courses are STRONGLY recommended to meet University Studies requirements, and faculty will be required to develop and pursue a recruitment plan.
Applications should be from PAIRS of faculty from different disciplines, and directed toward a 3-week course in Scotland for majors from across the curriculum. Successful faculty should expect to work with UW in Scotland, Education Abroad and Honors to organize their course or courses and to recruit, and to offer a 1-credit preparatory course in the Spring before they teach in Scotland. Total credits typically amount to 6, distributed over two courses. Courses that meet general education requirements as well as disciplinary ones, and the faculty’s ability to sustain, are preferred.
Deadline: 30 November 2023 (for 2025 courses)
