NYU Global Seed Grants for Collaborative Research

A new seed fund program has been announced by the Office of the Provost, together with the Provosts of NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai. The aim is to support faculty research that strengthens collaborations across the portal campuses of NYU's global sites.

All tenured and tenure track faculty in all NYU academic units are eligible to apply as Principal Investigators. At least two Principal Investigators from at least two separate campuses are required for submitting a proposal. Proposals may request project funding from $20,000 to $75,000 per year for a period of up to two years. 

The awards, typically for two years and starting in April 2016, were made by the Global Collaborative Research Advisory Committee, a committee of faculty from NYU in New York, NYU Abu Dhabi, and NYU Shanghai.  We will notify faculy when the next call for proposals is announced.

Provost Global Research Institutes

Faculty who anticipate leave in the academic year and are interested in conducting research abroad are encouraged to consider applying for support from the Provost's Global Research Institutes, which provide access NYU global sites to faculty and graduate students. 

In the past three years (2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14), 52 Steinhardt faculty and graduate students have won research support through the GRI.

The program facilitates research time in residence at one of the following NYU global academic centers: Berlin, Florence, London, Paris, Prague, Shanghai, Tel Aviv, and Washington, D.C.

Provost Faculty Initiative for Events

To request funding to support events abroad or at NYU- Washington DC (colloquia, conferences, workshops, etc.) that bring New York City faculty into contact with faculty at NYU's global sites, apply for the Provost's Faculty Research Initiative.

Steinhardt Global Research Incubator Award 

These awards provide up to $10,000 in total costs to support the development of faculty global research through small-scale, pilot, or formative studies. Successful proposals will show evidence of how support from the Global Research Incubator Award will catalyze projects to longer-term success.  Proposals may initiate a new line of research with a global perspective or introduce a global component into an existing research agenda. We anticipate that most funded projects will take place abroad, but exceptional proposals for US-based projects with an international/global dimension may be considered for funding.
