The I Engage Sustainability in the Curriculum (ISC) Program for Doctoral Students is intended to provide funds for doctoral students who serve as teaching assistants or instructors-of-record to develop and/or implement a course component that addresses sustainability in the community.
The ISC for Doctoral Students Program was developed jointly by the Office of Graduate Studies and the Curriculum, Research and Community Engagement workgroup of the University Sustainability Committee. The award includes a $1,500 fellowship to support the applicant and up to $1,500 of additional funds for other costs associated with the project (as specified in the Allowable Use of Funds section of the Call for Applications). Up to 3 grants will be awarded during the funding cycle. The funds will be used to support the development and/or implementation of a course component that allows students in the course use their disciplinary training and intellectual capital to address problems in the community, region or nation related to sustainability. Sustainability represents societal efforts to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
The deadline to apply for this funding opportunity is November 21, 2011.
