Requirement Timeline (for recipients)
Upon accepting the offer to participate in Live It, the awarded recipients will be expected to complete their projects in the way that they proposed as well as attend and participate in the activities outlined below before, during and after summer 2013.
Before Summer 2013:
- Attend two to three required pre-summer 2013 meetings that will be held by the IGCSC. Meetings will be designed for recipients to share information and resources and check in with the council.
- Attend two to three forums (dates to be announced) related to global citizenship. Forums will be designed to offer different perspectives and manifestations of global citizenship and will all have a discussion component.
- One short pre-reading may be required for the forums. Students will have three days to write a blog post of approximately 500 words relating the themes of the forum to their upcoming projects.
- Applicants will be assigned a liaison from the IGCSC to assist them with all necessary preparation work for the project, as described in their application or as needed.
During Summer 2013:
- Beginning June 1, Live It Fund recipients post at least three blog entries per month to “Blogal Views” sharing what they are doing and how it is impacting their understanding of global citizenship. Blog posts must be 47 to infinity words. Multimedia posts welcome.
- Awardees should continuously update their budget tracking forms and save all expenditure receipts.
- Grantees should take photos throughout the project as a means to share the project in the future.
After Summer 2013:
- Turn in receipts to the IGCSC the first week of classes.
- A final write up of the project and photos are due to the IGCSC by September 15. Details to follow.
- Attend a reunion meeting with the IGCSC in the beginning of the Fall semester.
- Participate in a panel to be held in October. This is meant to act as a activity to the student's summer experience by sharing what they learned and inviting a discussion on campus about varied approaches to global citizenship. (Date to be determined)
The recipients will serve as a contact for future applicants seeking mentorship in their projects. Their projects will be made publicly available though the IGCSC website for future applicants to review.
In the event that you are awarded a Live It Fund grant, you will be held accountable for meeting the above expectations. Recipients who fail to meet one or more of the above expectations will be held accountable as deemed appropriate by the IGCSC in reviewing the circumstances.
We recognize that projects of this nature tend to change as they are carried out. It may be that funds need to be used in ways other than those originally proposed. We require that LIF recipients inform us of any changes to the original proposal, budget or otherwise, prior to implementing those changes, and receive approval from their IGCSC liaison.
