The Curriculum Enhancement Grant fosters collaboration with the South Asian Studies at Syracuse University to create and implement curricular projects that integrate South Asia into the Public Administration and International Affairs or the Political Science curricula.

The grant will support a new course OR a substantial new unit of an existing course that would increase the coverage of South Asia in the course to a minimum of 25%. Courses that consider South Asian geopolitics or sustainability are of particular interest. The expectation is that this course will be taught in AY 2022-2023.

The South Asia Center will offer one curriculum grant of up to $1500 to a full time faculty member.
