2:10 p.m., April 3, 2014--The University of Delaware Center for Global and Area Studies (CGAS) and the Institute for Global Studies (IGS) invite applications from faculty members for the 2014 Global and Area Studies Grants Program.

The grants are designed to support faculty members’ international research, travel and scholarship.

Global Stories

Fulbright awards

Three University of Delaware students and an alumna have received word this spring that they will travel abroad as part of the newest class of Fulbright Student Program award winners.

Peace Corps plans

Two University of Delaware students, John McCarron and Bridgette Spritz, have been selected as Peace Corps volunteers and will serve in Ghana and Rwanda.

Ten awards are available with preference given to faculty whose scholarship contributes to the Area Studies programs (African, Asian, European, Islamic, Jewish, and Latin American and Iberian). The award period runs from June 1, 2014-May 31, 2015.

The deadline for applications is Tuesday, April 15. All grant recipients are expected to present their research results as part of a CGAS/IGS Global and Area Studies Lecture Series.

Funds may be used for travel, research costs, salary, stipends, and other expenses directly related to the proposed activities. No cost share is required. Faculty teams may apply for a joint award.

Send applications via email to Bess Davis. A joint CGAS/IGS faculty committee will review the proposals and make recommendations. 

Questions should be addressed to Julio Carrión, director of CGAS. Grant recipients will be notified by Friday, April 25.
