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.

The fall and spring rounds of the Global Engagement Faculty Grants competition have been suspended for the 2020/21 academic year. 

We are now accepting applications for the Campion Hall (Oxford) residency. Please check here for more information.


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 spring 2020 round are due by March. 

  • International Collaborative Grants support joint conferences, workshops, or seminars involving at least two full-time Georgetown faculty and at least one foreign collaborator. These grants, of up to $15,000, cover eligible economy 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 all full-time faculty across all of Georgetown's campuses, as well as Georgetown University in Qatar.

In addition to these general global engagement grants, there is also funding available for supporting research projects related to global health. Please note that funding for global health related projects for fall 2020 has also been suspended.

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.
