FDC will offer one annual award of $3,000 to support faculty participation in a summer Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) International Faculty Development Seminar. The summer 2014 program features 21 seminars in diverse geographic regions including, Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. This grant is intended to support and encourage faculty international research and pedagogy. The award is applicable only to participation in one CIEE international faculty seminar in the summer following grant approval. Funds may be applied toward the seminar CIEE member registration fee and related expenses up to $3,000. Note that the registration fee does not cover airfare, most dinners, and numerous other incidental expenses. Faculty should check the CIEE website for specific information regarding covered and non-covered expenses. Additionally, CIEE does not allow non-participating spouses and/or family members on the seminars or to accompany participants on the itinerary.

GUIDELINES AND PROCEDURES

In writing a proposal and reporting on a completed grant, Faculty Development Grant guidelines and procedures (see page 3 of the Faculty Development Opportunities Handbook) should be followed as applicable. Grant proposals should include the seminar topic, country, dates, seminar fee, and an itemized estimate of related expenses. Proposals should also indicate how seminar participation would contribute to faculty research and pedagogy. If additional financial support is required (e.g, travel, registration fees in excess of those covered by this grant program, the non-covered meals, other allowable incidental expenses), proposals should indicate potential sources of funding beyond this grant. Faculty may apply for the International Faculty Development Seminar Grant and for a Faculty Development Grant concurrently by submitting a separate application for each.
 
Note: Once a proposal has been supported through an award from FDC, the faculty member must also apply for seminar registration through CIEE as soon as possible. Seminar applications to CIEE are accepted in the order that they are received. 
 
If a proposal is not supported by Skidmore, the faculty member can apply directly to CIEE for funding in the form of a Ping Faculty Fellowship or International Faculty Development Seminar Alumni Scholarship.
