Funding Opportunities for Faculty

There are many different pathways for faculty to fund global activities, most often through tuition dollars or research grants. The pages in this section highlight both internal and external sources to consider as you seek funding for your global engagement—from small to large, and for both new and seasoned faculty.

If you know of additional opportunities, please share them with us at Please also let us know if you have won an international award. We would love to hear about your experience to learn how we can support additional faculty with similar interests and goals.

Proposal Support

Faculty members who are interested in the opportunities outlined on this website may contact Global Programs to discuss ideas and plans, and to get assistance in navigating the application process. We are available to provide general advice and offer comments on draft proposals. Faculty are also strongly urged to seek assistance from colleagues in their field, lay readers, and BU faculty who have successfully competed for similar awards.
