Community College Internationalization Fellowship

Community College Partnership

The goal of the Community College Internationalization Fellowship is to encourage community college faculty to collaborate with Cornell University’s area studies programs and the South Asia Center at Syracuse University to create and implement curricular projects that integrate international, intercultural or global dimensions, and world languages into the community college curriculum. Projects may include a new course, a new unit for an existing course, or a service learning component to an existing course that encourages the exchange of diverse perspectives. We aim to increase the global learning and intercultural competence of our region's community college students.

Each project must engage with one or more specific world areas. To meet our funding agency’s requirements, projects engaging with Latin AmericaSouth Asia, or Southeast Asia will be given preference and greater curricular development support.

The projects will be implemented over the course of one year, with the possibility of an extension of a second year if the project warrants further development. Over the course of the first year, the outreach coordinator will coordinate administrative support, in-person and virtual meetings, and the availability of required content area resources. Individual projects will be funded as follows:

$500 for development at the start of the project and $500 for implementation upon completion.
