Global Engagement: Opportunities for International Research Funding

International engagement is a high priority for Utah State University. USU has a long history of global cooperation in research and education; Global Engagement facilitates the role of USU as a member of the global community. As part of this service, the office monitors online and email resources listing international project opportunities. These include, but are not limited to, grants.gov, World Bank, Asian development Bank, African Development Bank, USAID, US State Department, National Endowment for the Arts, NSF, NIH, and the United Nations Business Development databank. This information is distributed electronically to faculty with a known interest in international research. Global Engagement also works to familiarize itself with University resources and match those resources to funding opportunities.
