Internationalization Seed Grants

NC State faculty and staff are eligible to apply for up to $5,000 to support new international projects.

The aim of the Internationalization Seed Grant program is to provide grants that improve the range of international partnerships at NC State and foster meaningful, collaborative, global scholarship and engagement. Proposals are reviewed by the Committee on International Programs (CIP).

Strategic and intentional collaborations that lead to the development of joint research proposals, student mobility programs, adjunct appointments and scholarly activities are encouraged. The maximum award, not including any cost sharing funds from the domestic and international partners, is $5000.

The next call for proposals is expected to be announced in Fall 2017.
