The fund enables faculty and their doctoral students to engage in research and creative interests worldwide and supports the university’s goal to become a tier-one research university.
The fund is comprised of two funds for global partnerships, and one focused on priority countries.
Joint Advisement Support for Doctoral Student Mobility – This fund allows a faculty member who serves as a co-chair/advisor for a doctoral student at a foreign institution to host that student at UNT for up to six weeks to allow collaboration. Funds also may be used to support international travel of doctoral students to collaborate with foreign co-advisors and their universities.
Supplemental Travel Support for Recruitment Within a Foreign Country - This fund assists faculty traveling abroad for a conference or consultation. Funds allow a longer stay to build new research collaborations and to recruit graduate students.
International Joint Workshops – These funds will support workshops of UNT faculty and counterparts from priority foreign countries at a foreign site or at UNT that can expand prestigious international research collaborations, lead to high profile publications and/or leverage future research funding. Workshop topics should be thematic and innovative and build on UNT’s current or emerging strengths in science, engineering, social sciences, humanities, education and the arts.
Targeted countries are Australia, Brazil, Chile, China, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, South Korea and Thailand. Proposals in other countries will be considered if they:
