The Global Gateway Faculty Research Awards (GGFRA) competition was recently opened and faculty are invited to apply. The deadline to submit a proposal is Monday, March 20, 2017 at 5:00 P.M. EST.

“This collaborative grant program between Notre Dame Research and Notre Dame International is distinctive when compared to our other internal grants,” said Hildegund Müller, Associate Vice President for Research. “By offering this grant program, we are encouraging our faculty to think creatively about the opportunities offered by our unique Global Gateways and to participate in extending and strengthening Notre Dame’s international connections. In addition, we are, for the first time, offering a fellowship option. We hope that the presence of research fellows will contribute to a vibrant intellectual climate in the Gateways.”

The GGFRAs will provide annual funding up to $50,000 USD to support faculty research connected to the Global Gateways and are open to full-time, regular faculty from all Colleges, Schools, and fields of discipline. The purpose of the award is to support internationally significant individual faculty research projects and/or collaborations with locally based research academies, universities, or research groups.
