Course Development Grants for International Honors Courses

Under the auspices of the Hutton International Experiences Program (HIEP) and in view of “Many Worlds, One Globe,” its multi-year series leading to the IU Bicentennial, the Hutton Honors College is pleased to announce the availability of $5,000 course development grants for HON-H courses (for Fall 2018, Summer 2018 or Spring 2019) that will incorporate an international travel component to enrich student understanding of the course topic. For more information on “Many Worlds, One Globe,” please see
Courses may range from the arts and sciences to the professional disciplines, including pre-law classes, and may focus on a variety of topics related to globalism and its effects on societies across the world. The experiential component of the course can be incorporated in a multitude of ways. Some possible examples include:
• Winter Session courses, conducted overseas and occurring during the two weeks before the Spring Semester with a few intensive sessions pre- and post-program
• Full-term or eight-week courses, involving a short term study tour during Winter Break, Spring Break, or immediately following the Spring Semester
• Standalone three-week Summer Session courses, primarily conducted overseas
Tenure-Track and Permanent Non Tenure-Track faculty members from any IUB school are welcome to apply for this course development grant. All applicants need the email endorsement of their chairs or unit directors at the time of application; this endorsement should specify that the applicant would be released to teach for HHC during the semester requested. Successful applicants will be expected to serve in the capacity of faculty director during the international travel component.
Selection will be based on quality of teaching, intellectual originality and breadth, and potential significance for the Hutton and campus pedagogical curriculum. Applicants are encouraged to creatively present how the international component will be integrated into the course, while explaining the educational rationale behind the choice of a particular location or locations. Preference will be given to programs that draw upon the resources of the IU Global Gateway Offices, travel to non-traditional locations, and have the potential to grow into an annual offering. (Note: Courses developed with HHC international course development grants must be approved by the IU Overseas Study Advisory Council (OSAC), before any recruiting, advertising, or scheduling for the proposed program begins. The Hutton Honors College HIEP Manager will work directly with faculty grant recipients to write and submit summer and spring program proposals for OSAC approval.)
Please send a sample syllabus, a course description (300 words), an overview of the international experiential component, and a brief CV ( 2 pp. max; please include education, current employment and title, and publications or courses taught only if relevant to the proposal) via email attachment (PDF) to by March 31, 2017. In the subject line, please enter "HON-H international course development grant application.”
