Texas Global Launches New Funding Opportunity to Support UT Faculty Research Collaborations Abroad

  • Nov 10, 2020

Texas Global has introduced a new funding opportunity to support UT faculty research endeavors addressing some of the world’s most pressing challenges. The Texas Global Faculty Research Seed Grants provide financial support to faculty across all disciplines to develop and strengthen new or existing partnerships with leading higher education institutions and organizations.

“UT Austin faculty have deep connections with colleagues across the globe,” said Sonia Feigenbaum, senior vice provost for global engagement and chief international officer. “The Texas Global Faculty Research Seed Grants expand and deepen our global engagement by encouraging faculty to bolster existing collaborations or initiate new research partnerships.”

The funding opportunity is open to all UT Austin tenured and tenure-track faculty members, as well as permanent researchers with principal investigator (PI) status for at least the past five years.

Applicants may request seed grants of up to $10,000 to complete a research project with one of UT’s leading partner institutions or to establish a new collaboration.

Preference will be given to proposals that support one or more of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Tangible outcomes of funded proposals include publications, hosting or co-hosting research symposia, or submission of a grant proposal that would continue the research project beyond the seed grant.

Proposals are due Jan. 6, 2021.
