Global Collaboration Initiative
The Global Collaboration Initiative grants are no longer active.
Under this program, grants between $10,000-$20,000 were awarded to fund initiatives in international research, scholarship and collaboration with major foreign universities and research organizations. The GCI was intended to enable the establishment or continuation of programs of research, scholarship and sustained international collaboration that make major contributions in any field of study.
