Funding Opportunities

Office of Global Programs

Boston University’s Global Programs office maintains a list of 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.

Proposal Support

Faculty members who are interested are also welcome to contact Global Programs to discuss ideas and plans, and to get assistance in navigating the fellowship and grant application process. Global Programs staff 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.


Finally, BU’s Global Programs office maintains a list of resources that help support your global ideas, from inspiration through implementation. Whether you are interested in learning more about BU’s global academic initiatives, events, and news, planning a research trip abroad, or thinking about running an overseas project, you will find tools to assist you at every step on their website.
