Call for Proposals: Fourth Round of Global Research Collaboration Grant Program

Call for Proposals: Fourth Round of Global Research Collaboration Grant Program
Deadline: Tuesday, October 10, 2017

UGA is launching the fourth round of funding for the Global Research Collaboration Grant (GRCG) program to encourage the development of sustainable international research and service activities. Grants ranging from $4,000 to $8,000 will be awarded to support preliminary international research, partnership development, and preparation of proposals in pursuit of specific sources of external funding.

The program is funded by UGA’s Office of Research and the Office of International Education, in conjunction with academic units. Proposals are due October 10, 2017.

Grantees may use the funding over the course of one year for videoconferencing, travel and other collaborative efforts, preliminary data collection, feasibility studies and proposal preparation. To be eligible, proposals must identify and commit to pursue specific sources of external funding as a result of the activities enabled by the grant.

To help researchers identify potential funding, the Office of Research and OIE have developed a database of international funding opportunities, searchable by geographical location or subject matter, available online at http://research.uga.edu/oie. Training is available to faculty and support staff to develop customized funding queries for international funding in the Pivot database.
