Collaborative Research Grants

The Halle Institute for Global Research Collaborative Research Grant program is open to full-time tenured, tenure-track, and lecture-track faculty from any of Emory's nine schools (all fields and disciplines). Applicants develop a proposal with current or potential faculty partners and broad, cross-disciplinary projects, including ones that include undergraduate and/or graduate students, are encouraged. Previous research experience in the partner institution’s country is not required and upon request, the Halle Institute will offer help creating connections with potential collaborators.

The Collaborative Research Grant program supports the Halle Institute's goal of fostering international research across all disciplines.

Nanjing University

The Collaborative Research Grants program broadly fosters international research. Applicants from all schools and disciplines are encouraged to submit funding applications for innovative and sustainable programs built around collaborative research projects linking faculty from Nanjing University and Emory University with each other. The research may take place in any country as long as it is done collaboratively. Outcomes may include publications, external funding, or other forms of research-based activity.

Application:

The Collaborative Research Grants will fund up to two applications (each with at least two principle investigators: one from the partner organization/university and one from Emory) per year. Selected applications will receive the equivalent of up to USD15,000 from each institution for a total of up to USD30,000 per project. These funds must be primarily used for research (broadly defined) and may include travel and related expenses.  Proposals may include hosting a seminar/conference/workshop/symposium as one line item.  

Applications from regular full-time faculty in all schools, departments, or programs are welcome and will be assessed on academic quality and impact, sustainability, innovation, relevance to the universities' strategies, and relevance to fostering international research partnerships. Priority will be given to applications that contribute to institutional impact, that encourage broad collaborations across each university, and that support activities involving graduate and undergraduate students. Grants should be spent within the period indicated in the project submission or, as a maximum, within 24 months of receipt of funding. The Collaborative Research Grant guidelines will provide additional details and application instructions.  

Faculty will be invited to submit proposals for collaborative research projects using a common application form. Questions should be directed to Kelly Richmond Yates, Assistant Director, Halle Institute for Global Research, halle.global@emory.edu.

The application deadline for projects beginning in 2020 is September 27, 2019.


 São Paulo State Research Foundation (FAPESP)

The Halle Institute for Global Research and the São Paulo, Brazil Research Foundation (FAPESP) jointly offer seed funding to support the exchange of researchers for scientific and scholarly cooperation. The Halle Institute encourages Emory faculty with current or potential research connections with Brazilian partners at universities in the state of São Paulo to apply for the next round of funding. Full-time tenured, tenure-track, and lecture-track faculty from any of Emory's nine schools are eligible to apply. Proposals that include support for activities involving students are encouraged. Emory will prioritize projects that have institutional impact and include broad collaborations across the University.

The next call for proposals will be in October 2019.
