Global Carolina Faculty International Travel Grants Spring 2020 Request for Proposals

Understanding that one of the best ways to be a global university is to have faculty who are internationally recognized as experts in their fields, Global Carolina is happy to announce its Spring 2020 call for faculty international travel grants. Faculty applying for such grants are expected to spread the University of South Carolina’s reputation globally while presenting significant, high-impact research (as first author or equivalent) or making other prestigious contributions to their respective field at major international meetings, conferences, exhibitions, and performances. The maximum grant is up to $1,000 and must be matched by the awardee’s unit.

Proposals will be awarded by the Office of the Provost’s International Advisory Committee, chaired by the Director of Global Carolina. A complete application containing a brief abstract or proposal should be submitted, along with a proposed budget and written confirmation of unit matching funds. Details are provided in the FAQs.
