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.
The main goal of this competitive program is to encourage interdisciplinary international research among MSU faculty. 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 http://international.msstate.edu/research/intranet/index.php, where you will be prompted to log in with your MSU netID and password to access the information.
Additional information and an application form can be found at http://international.msstate.edu/research/IWGGP/IWGGP.pdf.
To apply please submit a completed application packet to Interim Associate Vice President for International Programs Jon Rezek at email@example.com no later than Dec. 15.
