Grants 

Funded

  • 2014: Bandyopadhyay, k. & Bandyopadhyay, S., Investigating the Factors Influencing Participation in College Study Abroad Programs, Co-Principal Investigator, Lamar University (Research Enhancement Grant). This study will investigate the factors that influence student participation in college study abroad programs. We posit that students' general perceptions regarding the study abroad experience and their expectations of intercultural awareness from study abroad programs will impact their perceptions of personal growth, professional development, and intellectual growth to be derived from such programs. The expectations regarding personal growth, professional development, and intellectual growth will, in turn, directly impact students' intention to participate in study abroad programs. The relationships between the influencing factors and students' intention to participate will be measured via survey research.
  • 2011: Bandyopadhyay, S. Online Course Development Grant, Principal Investigator, Lamar University. The grant was awarded to develop an online version of the undergraduate E-Marketing Class (MKTG 3350).
