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.

South Korea Collaboration

The Halle Institute for Global Research and Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, jointly offer funding for mutually beneficial academic and research collaborations. Applicants from any discipline are encouraged to submit applications for innovative and sustainable programs built around collaborative research and/or learning and teaching initiatives linking Yonsei University and Emory University. The expectation is that these initial projects will lead to long-term institutional relations and generate significant external funding for on-going collaboration in the future.

Applications for the 2020 funding cycle were due in Fall 2019. Stay tuned for information on the next funding cycle.
