In order to be eligible for funding, projects must:
Preference is given to proposals that involve more than one department or school in order to encourage interdisciplinary work and to proposals that engage faculty, students, and staff.
PLEASE NOTE: Each faculty/staff member or student is limited to one award each academic year.
Available Funding: Awarded amount will rarely exceed $250. And no more than $100 of the awarded amount can be used for food or catering.
Applicants will receive award or rejection notices via email 1-2 weeks after submitting an application. Please do not contact the Center for Global Initiatives to inquire about the status of your application during this time frame. However, if you have not received a notice 3 weeks after you submit your application, please let us know.
If you receive this award, you will be required to submit a final report at the conclusion of the project using the Center for Global Initiatives' Online Reporting System. This system collects narratives and data about funded projects to enable the Center to determine whether its programmatic purposes are being met.
