Funded by the StAR process, this initiative is designed to support implementation of domestic intercultural immersion experiences for SUNY Oneonta students. Projects may focus on issues, themes, and location with historical and/or current significance in the United States or on its borders. Interdisciplinary proposals, in particular, are encouraged.
Funding for this project could support staff and faculty to coordinate the details of student recruitment, development of the learning experience/curriculum and outcomes, travel costs for faculty/staff and students, and student worker stipends.
To be considered for funding for the 2014-15 fiscal year, proposals must be submitted electronically to Kelly Spettel (Kelly.Spettel@oneonta.edu) by October 1, 2014. Proposal guidlines can be found here. For you assistance: proposal coversheet and budget template. A call for proposals for the 2015-16 academic year will go out during the spring 2015 semester.
There will be two information sessions held to answer questions regarding the proposals and to assist with the development of a budget. Attendance at one of the information sessions listed below is strongly recommended.
Thursday, September 4: 8:30am-9:30am in Netzer 310
Friday, September 5: 2:00pm-3:00pm in Netzer 310
