Grants Available for Literacy Communities to Explore Intercultural Understanding

Deadline to Apply:  July 15, 2020

Worlds of Words and CERCLL are excited to announce a second round of grants in the Global Literacy Communities project. These $1000 grants support communities in the use of global literature and world languages to build intercultural understanding. Global children’s and young adult literature provides an opportunity for teachers and students to explore understandings about global cultures that go beyond surface information to explore the values and ways of living as well as languages within those cultures. Public interest in global education creates a potential space for innovation within K-12 classrooms. Engaging in that innovation within a professional community provides support and challenge through dialogue and shared explorations. These grants are funded by CERCLL, Worlds of Words, the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, and the Center for Latin American Studies.

Grant period:  August 2020-June 2021
