Grants to Infuse Slavic, Eurasian, and East European Content, Context, and Connections into NC Community College Courses

Grants Still Available!
Contact Neil Bolick (919/843-5332) for more information.

World View, in collaboration with UNC’s Center for Slavic, Eurasian and East European Studies , is facilitating grants to community college educators to help them create modules to infuse Slavic, Eurasian, or East European content, context and connections to courses they teach.

Grants provide $750 to compensate for time and materials and to fund a research trip to UNC. 

Our intention is to support the addition of Slavic, Eurasian, or East European content to existing courses that have little or no such content. Preference will be given to proposals that develop regularly taught and/or required courses, and courses that affect large numbers of students.

Guidelines for modules

Please use the module format for your proposal.  The proposal does not have to be a complete module.  It simply outlines the module.  Proposals should include the following sections.

1.  Course number and short description of course.
2.  Description of module.
3.  Objectives (what skills and knowledge students will gain from module).
4.  Methodology (lectures / discussion / class projects / audio visual / blogs, etc.).
5.  Evaluation - what percentage of the course grade the module will count.
6.  Resources – It is not required that you fill this in at this time, as the UNC library specialists can help with this. However, you can list any resources you already know you will use.

Application

Please email Neil Bolick (nebolick@unc.edu) a 1-2 page outline proposing what you plan to do in you module using the proposal cover sheet in #1 below.

Examples of international modules for courses are available in #2 below.  This will give you an idea of what the modules look like. 

Please call Neil at 919/843-5332 if you have questions.
