Third Call for Proposals to the UGPN Research Collaboration Fund grants announced

Monday 24 March 2014

The University Global Partnership Network (UGPN) is pleased to announce the third Call for Proposals to the UGPN Research Collaboration Fund. The fund will support up to eight (8) projects based upon scientific and scholarly merit of proposals and the availability of resources.

These awards are designed to go beyond pump-priming and early contact partner outreach; they will 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.  Proposals should be jointly submitted by faculty from at least two of the UGPN partner institutions.

Projects funded during the first two cycles are listed online at:
2012: http://oia.ncsu.edu/ugpn-grant-awards-announced-2012  
2013: http://oia.ncsu.edu/ugpn-grant-awards-announced-2013

Further details and guidance notes can be found here.  The template for proposals can be found here:
