Two international business travel grant deadlines loom

The UW-Madison Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) offers two university grant programs for UW System faculty. The deadline for the next round of Applied Funds support is Tuesday, September 2, 2008. The deadline for the next Global Research/Curriculum Development awards is Wednesday, October 1, 2008.

CIBER’s Applied Funds program provides grants of up to $2,000 to support travel, conference registration, and participation in faculty development programs. CIBER’s Global Research/Curriculum Development grants usually range from $2,000-$7,500 and support international research or curriculum development activities such as developing an international study tour or enhancing a business language course.

Requests for funding under either program must relate to one or more of CIBER’s programmatic goals, including internationalizing curriculum content; creating faculty development and enrichment programs; collaborating with foreign language departments to develop business language courses; funding global research projects, events and publications on issues of strategic national interest; and creating and sponsoring business outreach and training programs to enhance the ability of U.S. business to compete internationally.
