CILMAR Faculty Grant Programs
NEW from CILMAR: Faculty Fellows and Mini Grant Programs
Dean Brzezinski announced on March 3, 2017 two new funding opportunities: CILMAR Faculty Fellows and a Mini-Grant program. The Faculty Fellows program is open to tenure track faculty interested in publishing on one of the two program themes. Purdue faculty, staff and doctoral students interested in small intercultural assessment or research projects are encouraged to apply for funding through the Mini-Grant program. The deadline for both programs for the 2017-2018 application cycle is April 7, 2017. Funding may also be available to faculty and staff for training in a 2.5 day seminar to become a Qualified Administrator for the Intercultural Development Inventory on April 25-27. Contact the CILMAR team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on these opportunities.
Study Abroad Intercultural Learning (SAIL) Grants
The SAIL grant program is offered to faculty for the development and/or support of departmental study abroad programs. Grant amounts vary by year and program type, and some SAIL grants require matching funds from the college or department. Funds will provide awards to faculty members through their academic units. Contact your college or school's International Programs Officer (IPO) for information about proposal procedures and deadlines.

Intercultural Pedagogy Grants (IPG)
The Dean of International Programs rolled out a new faculty grant for 2016-17 related to Intercultural Pedagogy. In the IPG program, faculty study abroad directors participate in a series of workshops on intercultural mentorship and assessment, and receive discretionary funds for professional development. The application process for this grant goes through college International Program Officers, just as SAIL does, and may be combined with SAIL proposals. See the additional information on SAIL grants for more information on the IPG program.
