Support for international engagement and scholarship can sometimes be hard to secure. Poole College supports our faculty with a special international seed grant funding program to help them engage globally.

The Poole College Faculty Global Seed Grant provides initial funding to help Poole faculty start a new or expand an existing relation with faculty colleagues at one of our partners. Seed grant funding can be used to support collaborative research initiative, and co-teaching and curriculum development, and student program design and engagement. It is not intended to support conference travel.
