Funding Opportunities

Support for global research and teaching

A number of funding mechanisms provide support for research, teaching, workshops, conferences, and study abroad program development in the countries and regions served by IU's Global Gateways.

Global Gateway Seed Grants

OVPIA will match up to $5,000 in commitments from other IU units (e.g., departments, schools, campuses) for activities at the Global Gateways. Preference will be given to applications that build on existing IU institutional partnerships, that involve collaborative activities likely to be sustained and enhanced in the future, and that advance strategic international goals of other IU units as well as the Indiana University International Strategic Plan.
