Funding: Faculty / Course Development Grants


With funding provided by its Department of Education Title VI grant, APSI offers course development grants each year. Competition for the grants is annual, with the deadline usually set for sometime in October. The maximum award for each grant is $2,500.

Criteria for Eligibility:

  • The course must be taught at least twice in the next five years.
  • The course must have at least 25% East Asian content.
  • APSI core faculty are given priority. Other faculty members are also invited to apply.

Selection Criteria:

  • Priority is given to a new course. Next priority is given to an existing course to be taught for the first time by a different faculty member. Proposals from faculty members who are planning to overhaul an existing course are also considered.
  • Both graduate and undergraduate courses are funded, but we strongly encourage 200-level courses, which are open to both undergraduate and graduate students.
  • A course with higher East Asian content is given higher priority.

Application

Please submit: a) a course proposal of at least one page, b) a budget with the specific description of planned use of the funds (i.e. visiting lecturer, teaching materials, research assistant) and the semester it will be taught, and c) a letter from your chair approving that the course will be rostered in the department or an official Request For Approval of Add/Revision of Regular Course Offering signed by your chair.
