Under the auspices of the Hutton International Experiences Program (HIEP), the Hutton Honors College is pleased to announce a call for proposals to develop new HON-H courses for the 2024-25 academic year and beyond that will incorporate an international travel component to enrich student understanding of the course topic. International course development grants are available to help fund site visits to strengthen in-country connections and support exploring new academic and logistical arrangements.
Propose a new Hutton Honors Study Abroad program
Courses may range from the arts and sciences to the professional disciplines, including pre-law classes, and may focus on a variety of topics related to globalism and its effects on societies across the world. The experiential component of the course can be incorporated in a multitude of ways. Some possible examples include:
- Winter Session courses, conducted overseas and occurring during the two weeks before the Spring Semester with a few intensive sessions pre- and post-program
- Full-term or eight-week courses, involving a short term study tour during Winter Break, Spring Break, or immediately following the Spring Semester
- Standalone, three- or four-week Summer Session courses, primarily conducted overseas
When applicable, the faculty member could utilize the resources of the IU Global Gateway Offices in Europe, Latin America, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and East Asia.
Please note that credit hours of all HHC courses taught by non-HHC personnel are accredited to the units of the instructors.
Tenure-Track and Permanent Non Tenure-Track faculty members from any IUB school are welcome to apply for this course development grant. All applicants need the email endorsement of their chairs or unit directors at the time of application. For courses taught during the academic year, this endorsement should specify that the applicant may teach the HON-H course as part of his/her regular load during the semester requested.
The deadline for proposals is December 31, 2023.
Grants of up to $5000 are available to fund international travel costs of a site visit related to the development of new HON-H courses for the 2024-25 academic year and beyond that will incorporate an international travel component to enrich student understanding of the course topic. These courses will constitute new program offerings in the Hutton Honors Study Abroad portfolio. Successful applicants will be expected to serve in the capacity of faculty director during the international travel components. The Hutton Honors College will provide the faculty director with planning, logistical, and onsite staff support.
Please note that faculty members who have already completed a relevant site visit or are otherwise not in need of a grant to fund such a visit may still apply to develop a new Hutton Honors Study Abroad program.
Please send the following documents via email attachment (PDF) to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Sample syllabus
- Course description (300 words max)
- Overview of the international experiential component
- Brief CV (please include education, current employment and title, and only publications and/or courses taught relevant to proposal)
- Letter of endorsement from department chair or unit director
- Proposed site visit information (if applying for grant funds)
- Estimated budget for international site visit
- Description of potential site visit activities or sample itinerary
In the subject line, please enter "HON-H international course development application.”
Note: Applicants should have in-country experience with the proposed site of the international component. If lacking such experience, please include a detailed explanation of how your site visit to the proposed location will address any potential concerns related to this subject.
The following criteria will be considered, when selecting proposals for funding:
- Academic quality of proposed course
- Feasibility of international component
- Quality of teaching
- Intellectual originality and breadth
- Potential significance for the Hutton pedagogical curriculum
Applicants are encouraged to creatively present how the international component will be integrated into the course, while explaining the educational rationale behind the choice of a particular location or locations. Preference will be given to programs that draw upon the resources of the IU Global Gateway Offices, travel to non-traditional locations, and have the potential to grow into an annual offering.
Courses developed with HHC international course development grants must be approved by the IU Overseas Study Advisory Council (OSAC), before any recruiting, advertising, or scheduling for the proposed program begins. The Hutton Honors College Director of International Experiences and Undergraduate Grants will work directly with faculty grant recipients to write and submit program proposals for OSAC approval.
