Global funding deadline

15 May 2019

Are you a UCL academic collaborating with partners overseas? There are now just two weeks left to apply for UCL's global funding opportunities.

UCL Global Engagement Funding

 UCL's global funding opportunities include:

  • Global Engagement Funds (up to £2,000 per project for academic activity in any country)
  • Cities partnerships Programme (up to £5,000 per project for academic activity in Paris or Rome)
  • UCL-PKU Strategic Partner Funds (up to £10,000 per project for academic activity with colleagues at Peking University)

The Global Engagement Funds are led by UCL's network of Vice-Deans (International) and Pro-Vice-Provosts (Regional). Awards of up to £2,000 are available for academics to facilitate and accelerate activity with global partners, including other academics based at an international higher education institution, research institute, NGO/charity, governmental body or corporate entity.
If your project is designed with partners in Rome or Paris, apply to the Cities partnerships Programme. This is a new UCL-wide initiative, which supports academic work in major cities across the world. Beginning with Rome and Paris, it offers seed funding of up to £5,000 per project for collaborations with partners in these cities.
Dr Florian Mussgnug from the School of European Languages, Culture & Society is Academic Director for activity in Rome and Dr Claire Colomb from The Bartlett School of Planning for Paris. In summer, UCL’s Global Engagement Office will open applications for an academic director to propose a third city.
Find out more about previous collaborations funded by these awards, such as Professor Monica Lakhanpaul’s work with Save the Children and IIT Delhi in India and Dr Colin Marx’s work with colleagues at Makerere University in Uganda.
Applications will close at 23:59 on 17 May 2019. For more information about either funding opportunity, please contact vpi.global@ucl.ac.uk
