International Programs Fund: January 20
Applications are due on or before January 20 for consideration under Penn's endowment fund for international programs, which provides support for area and international studies within the context of Penn's Agenda for Excellence.
The International Programs Fund will seed new projects or experimental programs on a short-term basis, and faculty are encouraged to conduct collaborative research with colleagues abroad-especially at institutions with which Penn has formal cooperative agreements.
Awards in the $10,000-$15,000 range will be made on a competitive basis by the provost, with the advice of a faculty committee, using criteria given in an announcement available from Dr. Joyce Randolph, Office of International Programs, 133 Bennett Hall/6275 (or phone 898-4665; fax 898-2622; or e-mail email@example.com).
