International Collaboration Grant for Faculty
- To develop or enhance current international connections between UM faculty and their counterparts in academic/research institutions abroad with the hope that a focus on areas of mutual interest will lead to expanded international collaborations.
- Open to all tenured and tenure-track faculty pursuing international research, collaboration, and technical assistance initiatives. While both populations are eligible, preference will be given to untenured tenure-track faculty.
- To be eligible, faculty must identify and commit to making presentations, writing articles, and/or other scholarly activities as a result of the project enabled by the International Collaboration Grant, thus expanding UM’s global footprint.
- Faculty members may not be granted the ICG in consecutive cycles though exceptions could be made depending on the availability of funds.
