Global Engagement Faculty Grants

The Office of the Vice President for Global Engagement supports several grant programs as well as the Campion Hall (Oxford) residency.

A Global Engagement Faculty Committee, nominated by the provost and the executive vice presidents of the Law and Medical Centers, meets twice a year, in March and October, to consider proposals.

The short descriptions below link to more detail about the programs and the streamlined application process. Applications for the fall 2018 round are now closed.

  • International Collaborative Grants support joint conferences, workshops, or seminars involving at least two Georgetown faculty and at least one foreign collaborator. These grants, of up to $15,000, cover eligible travel and meeting expenses.
  • International Travel Grants support faculty presenting papers at major conferences outside the United States. These grants, of up to $1,250, defray the cost of economy airfare.
  • Global Humanities Faculty Seminars support speaker series around issues of culture, identity, narrative, and power that cut across national boundaries. These grants, of up to $12,500 each, are co-sponsored by Georgetown College.
  • The Campion Hall (Oxford) Residency enables extended faculty research stays at Oxford University, typically for one semester or during the summer.

All programs are open to tenure- and non-tenure-line faculty across all of Georgetown’s campuses, as well as GU-Qatar.

In addition to these general global engagement grants, there is also funding available for supporting research projects related to global health.

Additional funding opportunities are available through the Office of the Provost. The provost awards approximately $1 million annually in institutional grants or fellowships to faculty on the Main Campus, some of which can be used to fund international research and travel.
