Faculty & Staff Funding Opportunities

Center for Global Studies Faculty & Staff International Research Grant

The UW Center for Global Studies (CGS) is pleased to announce the annual Faculty & Staff International Research Grant Competition.  CGS maintains funding to support UW faculty and staff with advancing international research and engagement (including creative projects in the arts).  Grants may be awarded for internationally oriented research that is done in collaboration with UW international partner institutions, conducted outside the U.S., and/or focused on international topics of relevance to UW and the state of Wyoming.

AWARD

CGS Faculty & Staff International Research Grants (awards up to $5,000) support faculty or staff members who are engaged in or pursuing internationally oriented research.  Funding is made available by the generous support of numerous donors, Academic Affairs, and the UW Office of Research and Economic Development.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Only internationally oriented research proposals will be considered, with prioritization given to research that advances the emerging GEO strategic framework for comprehensive internationalization, "Regions, Themes, and Partnerships".  For more information, please see the UW Strategic Plan for Global Engagement.
  • Applications must include a proposal narrative of no more than three (3) pages and a detailed, feasible and cost efficient budget, noting any existing funding.
  • Applications must be supported by a letter from the college dean or department head explaining how the project contributes to the international goals of the strategic plan of the college/unit.
  • Prior recipients of this grant are not excluded, but previous research grant outcomes will be considered in the evaluation.

EVALUATION CRITERIA

  • Degree to which the proposed research project advances the emerging GEO strategic framework for comprehensive internationalization, "Regions, Themes, and Partnerships".
  • Alignment with the department/academic unit's curriculum and international research goals.
  • Overall viability, relevance, and proposed deliverables of the proposed research project (e.g., scholarly publications, international co-authorship, etc.).
  • Cost efficiency and budget justification.
  • Other factors include the extent to which the project 1.) can be leveraged for external funding support, 2.) advances interdisciplinary collaboration, 3.) longevity of project, 4.) potential to expand UW's international research portfolio, and, 5.) enhances UW's international reputation and global standing.

Unless explicitly related to the proposed research project, applications for participation in international conferences, seminars, symposia, and related professional development opportunities will not be considered.

DEADLINES

Applications are due by 5:00pm MT on November 15 (for research conducted during the following winter or spring semester) or February 15 (for research conducted the following summer or fall semester).  Awards must be utilized in full within the specific fiscal year targeted for funding.  If the deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, applications will be accepted until the following business day at 5:00pm.  Early submission of applications is encouraged.

The International Research and Engagement Committee of the International Advisory Council will evaluate all applications and make final decisions.  (Members of the Center for Global Studies are non-voting.)

INFORMATION FOR RECIPIENTS

  • Grant recipients are required to submit a research summary to CGS within 6 months of receipt of funding.
  • Grant funds will generally be paid in the form of a reimbursement of approved expenses up to the awarded amount and within the specified time frame for which awards are made.  In some cases, a lump sum transfer may be possible to the host college/department.
