Chancellery International - New Seed Grants for Global Classrooms

Chancellery International is pleased to announce an inaugural seed fund for the development of Global Classrooms – an educational initiative that creates and delivers curriculum in collaboration with the University’s international partners.

The University’s commitment to Global Classrooms is indicative of our mission to internationalise our curriculum, and to increase student access to global learning experiences that are both innovative and distinctive.

Global Classrooms Seed Grants may be used for the following:

  • cost to support engagement of a local or global community partner in the module or course, including honoraria for community guest speakers
  • costs associated with technology; If funding for software or equipment is being requested, provide a clear rationale for costs, and demonstrate that these do not duplicate existing departmental/divisional/university resources; please also comment on longer-term plan for software or equipment, beyond the course for which funding is being sought
  • cost of building course materials for use on LMS sites
  • materials and equipment to enable a partner's participation, including potentially costs incurred by a partner from a lower income setting to establish a Global Classroom
  • evaluation component
  • student incentives for group competition
  • student’s material costs
  • research assistant time, if costs not covered through other budgets

More detailed information, including the background to the development of the project and the grant guidelines, is available here.

The Application Form is available also. Note that Global Classroom Seed Grants are not intended to fund, Travel costs, or Research initiatives.

One-off, start-up grants up to $10,000 each (from the total fund of up to $100,000) will be awarded in 2022. These will be for development of subjects to be offered in Semester 2, 2023 or Semester 1, 2024.

Applications open on 18 July and close on 26 August 2022.
