University Global Partnership Network Research Collaboration Fund

NC State faculty and staff are eligible to apply for funding to collaborate with top universities in the network.

This fund supports international activities leading to research collaborations between researchers at the University Global Partnership Network’s partner institutions. Network members are top universities around the world including The University of São Paulo in Brazil, University of Surrey in the United Kingdom and The University of Wollongong in Australia.

The annual fund of $240,000 has supported 35 international research projects to date. Awards support substantive engagement that leads to high-quality outputs — such as international research training for graduate students or early career faculty, publication of joint papers from collaborative research, or joint research bids.
