The International Center’s theme of learning without borders extends to our faculty and research community. Through the Global Fellows Program, UF faculty can kick-start their international research program. A seed grant of $5,000 provides faculty an opportunity to lay the groundwork for conducting international research. Faculty can use these funds to cover expenses to travel to collect field data, to meet with international scholars, to access resources not available at UF, and to support any activity that advances research abroad.
- Tenure track faculty and others with a research assignment, from all UF schools and colleges, and who are within the first 10 years of their academic career. Adjuncts and visiting faculty are not eligible.
- Fellows must demonstrate a commitment to add or integrate an international dimension to their existing research stream. No previous international research experience is required.
- Attend the Global Workshop series including: orientations, closing symposium, and five of the six workshops offered during the fellowship.
