The aim of the Internationalization Seed Grant program is to provide grants that improve the range of international partnerships at NC State and foster meaningful, collaborative, global scholarship and engagement. Proposals are reviewed by the Committee on International Programs (CIP). NC State faculty and staff are eligible to apply for up to $5,000 to support new international projects. Strategic and deliberate collaborations that lead to the development of joint research proposals, student mobility programs, adjunct appointments and scholarly activities are encouraged. The seed grant program is currently accepting proposals for the 2018-2019 cycle.
