Faculty invited to submit Global Research and Engagement Micro-Grant proposals

The Office of the Provost invites faculty to submit proposals for the Global Research and Engagement Micro-Grant Program, which helps faculty pursue international research, scholarship and creative expression projects or pursue strategic, time-sensitive opportunities for global research and engagement.

The awards are open to all full-time VU-employed (provost-reporting) faculty. Creative proposals on a wide range of topics are welcome. Proposals should address the benefits to the faculty member and to Vanderbilt.

The Global Research and Engagement Micro-Grant Program is supported by the TIPs-funded Global VU Initiative in collaboration with the Office of the Provost. GlobalVU welcomes ideas outside of the scope of the micro-grant program to support international research and engagement. Reach out to
