Grants, Fellowships & CFPs

Grants for Regional Faculty Groups

Event Date: Thursday, February 1st, 2018

Sponsored by: Global Affairs

Only are faculty eligible for this grant, fellowship, or residency.


The Global Affairs Grants for Regional Faculty Groups stimulate interactions and build stronger regional conversations among the faculty working in the same region of the world. The grant is provided to engage faculty from a wide range of disciplines, who share knowledge and interests in advancing regional and multi-disciplinary collaborations here at UC Davis and abroad. Funding requests should bring together our UC Davis faculty who are working in the same region, perhaps through a networking event, joint meal(s), speaker series, or other similar event on campus. This funding is for events to be held at or near UC Davis, not in other countries.

UC Davis Academic Senate faculty members and Academic Federation members with PI status, from any UC Davis location, are eligible to apply.
Multiple proposals from each region are allowed; however, only one proposal from each of the five regional groups will be awarded. Therefore, we encourage faculty within each regional group to explore joint initiatives and collaborative proposals.

Funding from Global Affairs will be $5,000 per accepted proposal. The regional groups and
corresponding email list addresses are:
 Sub-Saharan Africa (
 Asia and the Pacific (
 Europe (
 Latin America and the Caribbean (
 Middle East and North Africa (

Visit the Global Affairs website for further information about current members of each regional group.
To contact members of each group, send an email to the moderated email list (listed above). To be
added to any group, please contact Jennie Konsella-Norene,
