Fellowship Opportunity – GLOBALtimore Teaching Fellowships

All UMB faculty are eligible to take their interest in curricular internationalization to the next level by applying to become a GLOBALtimore Teaching Fellow.  The program consists of workshops, support stipends, and membership in a learning community of faculty from across UMB’s professional and graduate schools to learn about global education and how to integrate global concepts into new or existing courses.  The seven selected Fellows will be awarded a stipend of $2,000. For more information, click on GLOBALtimore fellow program for details.

The GLOBALtimore Teaching Fellows funds ($2000 per fellow) will be deposited into the fellows’ school’s revolving fund, and the faculty then work with their finance folks on distribution, according to UMB and school guidelines.   The funds CAN be used to buy faculty time, for supplies, workshop attendance, GRAs, or any other expense related to curriculum internationalization that the school finance office approves.


Applications open on April 1 and will be available HERE
