Interested in developing new courses in global and regional issues? Stanford Global Studies (SGS) is once again inviting proposals for Course Innovation Awards to support the development of courses focused on substantive topics of regional or global interest.

This year, in partnership with Stanford Introductory Studies, we are especially interested in supporting courses that can be offered through the new first-year Civic, Liberal, and Global Education Requirement (COLLEGE), which is launching in the 2021-22 academic year. This new requirement will engage students in a purposeful study of liberal education and challenge them to examine their roles as global citizens in complex, diverse societies. It represents an extraordinary opportunity to make learning about the world an integral part of a Stanford education. Our goal is to spur the design of new, creative courses that can appeal to large numbers of students and engage first-year students.

Awards will support the development of courses that: 

  • Develop in students an awareness of cultural diversity, as well as cultural self-awareness, and the ability to recognize connections between cultural, economic, and social practices across countries¬†
  • OR provide students with a set of methods for conducting comparative or systemic studies of global phenomena.

Proposals are due April 2, 2021.

Attend this information session to learn:

  • How to apply for an SGS Course Innovation Award
  • How to design a successful proposal that fulfills the COLLEGE learning goals
  • Benefits of teaching in COLLEGE


  • Jeremy M. Weinstein, Director, Stanford Global Studies Division
  • Dan Edelstein, Director, Stanford Introductory Studies
