Global Research and Engagement Micro-Grant Program

The Global Research and Engagement Micro-Grant Program helps faculty pursue international research, scholarship and creative expression projects or pursue strategic, time-sensitive opportunities for global research and engagement. This program is designed to support smaller scale projects that are not conducive to existing internal funding programs.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to make significant changes to the university’s budget, we are pausing this program for the remainder of the fiscal year. We will announce via myVU when the program is relaunched. If you have any questions, please reach out to Schyler Turrin (
