Founded in the belief that students can have significant intercultural experiences without traveling outside of the United States and 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. Programs may or may not be associated with a credit bearing course. Grant proposals for a timeframe of 1 or 2 years will be accepted.
Funding for this project could support staff and faculty to coordinate the details of student recruitment, development of a learning experience/curriculum and outcomes, travel costs for faculty/staff and students, and student worker stipends.
Stipends for faculty members will not be funded.
To be considered for funding, proposals must be submitted electronically to Jill Stafford (Jill.Stafford@oneonta.edu ) by 3:00pm on Friday, October 13 or Friday, November 17, 2017.
Feel free to contact a committee member with questions regarding the proposal.
