Deadline Approaching to Apply for the US-UK Fulbright Global Challenges Teaching Award


ACE is pleased to partner with the US-UK Fulbright Commission on the launch of applications for the inaugural Global Challenges Teaching Award. This new award seeks to promote digital innovation in teaching through building sustainable transatlantic links between students, faculty, and institutions.

Proposals are sought for initiatives that adapt virtual exchange/collaborative online international learning into an existing undergraduate course to be co-taught during the fall 2022 semester. The course must address and seek tangible solutions for one of the following ongoing challenges raci​al justice, pandemics, or climate change.

The application deadline is Monday, Dec. 13, by 5:00 p.m. GMT. Recipients will be announced in February 2022.

Faculty from diverse higher education institutions are encouraged to apply, including those that have traditionally been underrepresented in Fulbright, such as Historically Black Colleges and Universities, minority serving institutions, and Tribal Colleges (in the United States) and post-1992 universities (in the United Kingdom).

Successful applicants will be matched with a UK/US partner to take part in a yearlong grant program that will include funding from the US-UK Fulbright Commission and professional development training from ACE's Virtual Exchange/COIL Transformation Lab.

To learn more, listen to this in formational session, recorded by the US-UK Fulbright Commission and ACE on Nov. 16.
