International working group grant program opens

The International Institute is requesting proposals from faculty and research and Extension staff interested in creating interdisciplinary, cross-college international working groups at Mississippi State. Grants will be awarded up to $2,500 and have a 12-month duration.

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, where you will be prompted to log in with your MSU netID and password to access the information.
