CGS is pleased to announce that we were granted both NRC and FLAS awards for the 2022-26 cycle. Out of the 12 International Centers that were successful in the competition for the US Department of Education's Title VI funds, CGS received the highest level of funding for our category.
CGS hosted another successful International Studies Research Lab (ISRL)! ISRL is an initiative that promotes the internationalization of community colleges nationwide. Participants are faculty, librarians, and administrators interested in expanding global and area studies curricula, instruction in less commonly taught languages, library collections, or international education programs at their home institutions. This year's lab was the largest so far and the participants created several impressive projects to support their institutions, all of which are available on UIUC's IDEALS.
Global Intersections: Student Research and Project Grants
Global Intersections is a Center for Global Studies initiative designed to encourage multicultural, international, transnational, and global perspectives in student research. This initiative invites collaborative proposals from faculty and students across multiple disciplines that promote understanding and aid in solving global problems. These projects provide opportunities for students to engage directly in the process of developing new research directions in areas of global import.
FLAS Fellowship Information Sessions and Application
FLAS fellowships support graduate and undergraduate study in modern foreign languages in combination with area studies, international studies, or international or area aspects of professional studies. These fellowships are administered by the University of Illinois Area Studies Centers and Programs (including the Center for Global Studies), under a Title VI grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
