    United States Department of Education, 2002 ($459,282.00) Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education FIPSE grants are extremely competitive and the proposal process occurs in two stages. First, you craft a preliminary proposal, and then, if that proposal is accepted, you are invited to submit a full-proposal. In April 2002, I was notified that out of 1,324 preliminary applicants, I was one of 190 applicants invited to submit a full proposal. I sent the full version of the proposal to FIPSE in June 2002, and I am currently awaiting notification. The FIPSE project that I proposed was the development of a new interdisciplinary, intercampus, "Emphasis in Intercultural Competency" minor. The minor would seek to provide students with skills in intercultural interaction through three innovative strategies: coursework in Intercultural Competency, a required intercultural practicum experience, and a sharing of resources across participating campuses.
