Other Internal Funding at the University of Iowa

Open to all UI tenured, tenure-track, clinical, lecturer, and International Programs' adjunct faculty.

Major Projects Awards
Deadline: 2013 deadline TBA
Amount: $12,500

The Major Projects Awards support large-scale projects that promise to draw the attention of The University of Iowa community to international topics, whether aesthetic, cultural, historical, or political.  Funding is for a one-year period beginning July 1, 2014. As many as two projects will be funded, up to $12,500 each.

Curriculum Development Awards
Deadline: 2013 deadline TBA
Amount: $4,000

The Curriculum Development Award is designed to internationalize and enhance the undergraduate curriculum at the University of Iowa. Through the generous support of the Stanley-UI Foundation Support Organization, International Programs provides financial support for the development of courses with substantial international content. Two awards will be made during this cycle.

Summer Research Fellowships
Deadline: 2013 deadline TBA
Amount: $3,000

The International Programs Summer Research Fellowship is a developmental award for funding faculty research or creative activity with a clear international focus. An international location alone will not qualify as a strong project, and, in fact, the project may or may not involve travel abroad. Instead, the strongest proposals will demonstrate genuine engagement with international issues, whether aesthetic, cultural, historical, political, or global. The $3,000 IP Summer Research Fellowships are paid as 2013 summer salary only.

Several funding opportunities are available from the University of Iowa, the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies, the Office of the Provost (Faculty Development Programs), the Office of the Vice President for Research, and the International Programs Office. The link below will take you to a searchable database of all internal funding opportunities currently available at the University for research and scholarship. No funding opportunities for instruction are listed in this database.

The University of Iowa Council on Teaching has several awards in support of teaching both for faculty members and graduate student teaching assistants.
