International Working Group Grant Program

The International Institute is requesting proposals from faculty and research and extension staff interested in creating interdisciplinary, cross-college International Working Groups at MSU. Grants will be awarded up to $2,500 and have a 12 month duration.

The main goal of this competitive program is to encourage interdisciplinary international research among MSU faculty. To be eligible for funding, the proposal should be centered on a specific, internationally-oriented research or outreach theme. The working group must include a minimum of three members, and at least two colleges must be represented.

A secondary goal of the program is to expand and catalyze established international partnerships. An additional $2,500 may be requested if the interdisciplinary working group includes faculty or research staff from one of the universities or international organizations identified on the International Institute website at: http://international.msstate.edu/research/intranet/index.php (You will be prompted to log in with your MSU netID and password to access this information.)
