International Curriculum Fund

The International Curriculum Fund, administered by Western International, has annual funding of $100,000. Awards of up to $25,000 each will be available annually. The goal of the awards is to promote innovative curriculum initiatives that help support international and intercultural learning opportunities for Western students.

Specifically, they are designed to enhance the education of students, and transform the curriculum through incorporating substantive international and intercultural components that promote the development of cross-cultural competencies.

Ultimately the International Curriculum Fund (ICF) helps promote the education of global-ready graduates, and provides Western students with knowledge and skills they will need to live and work in diverse communities around the globe.

Past International Curriculum Fund projects:

Deadline for applications: 4:30 p.m., April 14, 2017.

Grants will be available for a period of up to two years from the starting date. Applications will be adjudicated by a committee appointed by Western International in consultation with the Teaching Support Centre.
