For more than 25 years, NIEA has awarded mini-grants for projects to internationalize curriculum. Awards range from $500 to $1,250, depending on the extent of curricular development. Juried awards are made in the spring of each year.
NIEA’s mini-grant program has benefited hundreds of faculty and students in the region. Abstracts of projects and course materials are available to the NIEA membership. The deadline to apply for 2022 mini-grants is May 31 at midnight. Applications must be submitted using the link below.

Each year the NIEA offers a competitive mini-grant process in which faculty at member institutions, both adjunct and full time, can propose an entirely new course, a new unit for an existing course, a substantial revision of an existing unit to make it more globalized, or a replicable international experience that enhances global knowledge at their institution. Grants are given after the faculty member demonstrates that he or she has taught the new or modified course/unit or conducted the activity.
Grant amounts are typically as follows:
- Developing an entirely new course that is global in focus: $1,500.00
- Substantially revising an existing course to make it more global: $1,250.00
- Creating a new unit for an existing course that is global in focus: $900.00
- Creating a replicable international activity: $500.00
