Proposals now being accepted for the 2nd round of funding
for grants supporting the “Domestic Intercultural Immersion Project”
Deadline for submission: February 2, 2015.
There will be a second call for proposals for the 15-16 academic year in late March with a due date of April 15, 2015!
Funded by the STAR process, this initiative is designed to support implementation of domestic intercultural immersion experiences for SUNY Oneonta students. Projects may focus on issues, themes, and location with historical and/or current significance in the United States or on its borders. Interdisciplinary proposals, in particular, are encouraged. 1 and 2 year grants proposals accepted.
Funding for this project could support staff and faculty to coordinate the details of student recruitment, development of a learning experience/curriculum and outcomes, travel costs for faculty/staff and students, and student worker stipends.
Last August the first round of funding was available for proposals in support of the Domestic Intercultural Immersion Project. The committee received 5 proposals. We were able to fund the following three.
- Anita Levine and Wendy Lascell proposed to take a group of students to New Orleans 9th ward to continue to assist in Hurricane Katrina recovery efforts.
- Fanli Jia and Qiong Wong will be developing relationships with the Chinese Community Center in Flushing, Queens, to take a group of students to Chinatown there, where they will work in various programs.
- Eliot Ruggles and Theresa Russo will be working with non-profit agencies in Philadelphia to set up opportunities for our students to work with homeless youth in the Philadelphia area.
