We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting requests for American Cultures Course Development Grants of up to $1,500. This grant supports the enhancement of an existing American Cultures course as well as the design of a new one that has not been offered previously. Funding can be requested in three categories:
- Supplies and expenses, which might include photocopying and printing, books and supplies
- Student hourly help to assist with, for example, digitizing materials (e.g., slides, maps, manuscripts, photographs), bibliographical and syllabi searches, or assignment-related research.
- General course enhancement includes assessment tool creation, social media assignment development, guest speaker honorarium, field site visits, transportation costs, and student project support.
