International Education Funding Sources

Multiple funding sources are tapped to support various international activities ranging from higher education capacity building and training, to study abroad to collaborative research. These resources are presented in three categories and feature funding for faculty/staff, and students at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Internal Sources such as the Research Initiation Grant; External Sources including U.S. government and State agencies, foundations, and international aid agencies; and a third category, Funding for Students, provide direct links to the Study Abroad Programs and International Student and Scholar Services web pages that provide information on internal as well as external funding sources.

Each category presents links to funders and in some cases, funding programs of International activities.  The GSU category provides a list of potential grants that may support international activities.
