Call for Applications: ICNC Curriculum Fellowships on Civil Resistance

By David J. Smith, January 27, 2016
This is a great opportunity, especially for community colleges, from the  International Center on Nonviolent Conflict. 
ICNC is launching the third edition of its popular Curriculum Fellowship program to support and advance both classroom-based and online teaching on civil resistance.

We strongly encourage you to closely review eligibility requirements and other important details about this fellowship here. Please note that incomplete submissions will not be considered, and plagiarism will disqualify an applicant.

We acknowledge the benefits of both traditional classroom-based teaching and online learning. Therefore, this year we are offering Curriculum Fellowships to support both formats. We strongly encourage applications from academic faculty and educators from countries or regions with restrictive spaces or conflict-torn places where greater knowledge and understanding of nonviolent resistance practices would benefit young people and society in general.

In 2016, up to eight curriculum fellowships, each in the amount of$1,300, will be offered on open, merit and competitive bases to university and college faculty and instructors to develop:

1.    a curriculum unit on civil resistance that will be incorporated into the existing classroom-based, elective or mandatory, semester-long course at the applicant’s home university. For more see Classroom-Based Course
2.    an online seminar on civil resistance that will be offered to students and interested participants from applicant’s university, town, district, country or the region. The online seminar would be given through ICNC’s Moodle platform. For more see Online Seminar

Teaching for 2016/2017 ICNC Curriculum Fellowships is expected to take place either in late spring, summer, fall 2016 or spring 2017.

The application deadline is February 14, 2015.
