Faculty-Led Study Abroad and International Service Learning Programs - Winter & Summer 2017

Call for Proposals

The College of Professional and Global Education (PaGE) seeks proposals for the development of self-support, faculty-led study abroad and international service learning programs during the winter and summer 2017 terms with the goal of increasing Cal State LA student participation in study abroad and international service learning programs.

Faculty Eligibility
All full-time appointed faculty is invited to submit proposals. Before submitting proposals, faculty should first consult with their department chairs to ensure that such programs are supported by the department. College deans or their designee must also support these efforts.

Competitive Priorities:

  • Proposes locations in which the faculty has experience and expertise
  • Offers opportunities in countries or regions in which Cal State LA has little or no currently study abroad programming
  • Provides increased accessibility of study abroad

Review will be conducted by staff from the College of Professional and Global Education and members of the Cal State LA Council on International Programs. The review committee will consult with Department Chairs, Associate Deans, and Deans in the review process. The review committee may conduct an interview with the proposer of the program.

A stipend of $2,500 will be provided for developing the program. These funds are to support faculty participation in providing short-term study abroad and international service learning courses.

Previous awardees are eligible to receive a new stipend if the location and course description is different from the previous award. It will be up to the discretion of the Council on International Programs to make this determination.
