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.

Collaborative Research Grant proposals are reviewed by a faculty panel representing multiple schools and disciplines. Proposals should be written in clear, accessible language.

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

Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Global Disease, Healing, and Health

The Collaborative Research Grant for Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Disease, Healing, and Health is a unique funding opportunity in partnership with the Emory Global Health Institute (EGHI). This program is designed to identify new collaborative research projects linking Emory faculty from at least two Emory schools. Proposals are expected to broaden networks via innovative research from different disciplinary or methodological perspectives. 

The grant fosters creative and broadly conceived collaborative multidisciplinary research projects and may take place in any country outside of the United States (comparative projects that include joint research in both the US and another country will be considered). Outcomes may include publications, external funding, programmatic work, local research capacity building, and/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 from two diifferent Emory University schools) per year. Selected applications will receive up to USD 20,000 per project. These funds must be primarily used for research (broadly defined) and may include travel and related expenses. 

Applications from regular full-time faculty in all schools, departments, or programs are welcome. Applications will be peer reviewed by a multidisciplinary, multi-school committee. 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, and that include partners in the research location.

Call for Proposals: Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Global Disease, Health, and Health Collaborative Research Grant


Questions should be directed to Kelly Richmond Yates, Assistant Director, Halle Institute for Global Research, halle.global@emory.edu.

Applications are due on January 24, 2020.


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 next call for proposals will be in Fall 2020.


 São Paulo State Research Foundation (FAPESP)

The Collaborative Research Grants program fosters international partnerships in research, capacity building, and other academic areas. 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 the State of São Paulo and Emory University. The research may take place in any country as long as it is done collaboratively. The expectation is that these initial projects will lead to long-term collaborations, institutional and research relations and, when applicable, generate significant external funding for on-going collaboration.

Application:

The Collaborative Research Grants will fund up to one application (each with two principle investigators: one from a university in the State of São Paulo and one from Emory) per year.  Selected applications will receive the equivalent of up to USD 10,000 from each institution for a total of up to USD 20,000 per project. These funds must be primarily used for research and may include travel and related expenses. Proposals may include hosting a seminar/conference/workshop as a line-item.

Applications from full-time faculty in all schools, departments, or programs are welcome and will be assessed on the basis of academic quality and impact, sustainability, innovation, relevance to the universities' strategies, and relevance to fostering long-term 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 that enable involvement of graduate and undergraduate students, with a primary focus on research.
