Faculty Research & Curriculum Development Awards

Purdue CIBER offers awards to Krannert faculty to support course development and research activities. These awards may be used for research or technical assistance, salary support or other research costs including travel for data collection purposes. 

At least one curriculum development award per year will support infusion of globalization of an existing class.  Priority will be given to materials related to emerging economies and/or the use of technologies that enhance global reach of businesses.

All full-time faculty members are encouraged to submit proposals for research in international business or for course development that contributes to the internationalizion of the Krannert curriculum. Theoretical and empirical projects are invited.
