2024-2025 Curriculum Grants

Funding Opportunities Provided by Purdue Global Partnerships & Programs (GPP) and CILMAR

Purdue Global Partnerships & Programs and CILMAR are offering funding opportunities for faculty and staff on the Purdue-West Lafayette campus that support planning, embedding, and facilitation of intercultural learning.

 The Intercultural Pedagogy Grant (IPG)


The IPG program incentivizes intercultural competence and curriculum design training for faculty and staff embedding intercultural competence in curricular and co-curricular spaces, such as:

  • traditional, in-person study abroad and study away programs
  • virtual exchange programs, including online international collaborations
  • on-campus courses and programs
  • remote and distance learning courses

The 6 mentor-the-mentor workshops for IPG take place during September and October with program requirements due in December. Successful completion of IPG is required for SAIL Grant eligibility. The SAIL grant can be combined with IPG. Questions about the IPG grants should be directed to Dr. Daniel Jones (dcjones@purdue.edu).
