New Grant Opportunity – Please Share Widely!
TeamUp-Sister Cities International Pilot Collaboration!
TeamUp is pleased to announce a pilot collaboration with Sister Cities International (SCI) for two one-year one-time grants of $9,600 each, which will be awarded competitively to two pairs of medium and small-sized U.S.-Japan sister cities with a population of 100,000 or less. The grants will be awarded for the express purpose of developing higher education student mobility by creating new, or enhancing existing partnerships between colleges and universities in those cities. The successful city-pairs will propose a program or series of activities aimed at boosting student mobility. The activities will be directly or indirectly focused on student mobility or enhancing the experience of the visiting students. SCI/TeamUp encourage innovation and creativity in designing the proposal, including use of technology to maximize interaction and communication. City pairs should take into account the infrastructure already developed between the two cities and build on it to enhance student mobility or the visiting student experience.
