Center for Global Studies - Student International Research Grant
The Center for Global Studies maintains funding to support full-time UW students with advancing international research and engagement (including creative projects in the arts). Grants may be awarded for internationally oriented research that is done in collaboration with UW faculty, conducted outside the U.S., and/or focused on international topics of relevance to the applicant’s studies at UW.
CGS Student International Research Grants (awards up to $2,500) support full-time UW students who are engaged in or pursuing internationally oriented research. Funding is made available by the generous support of numerous donors, Academic Affairs, and the UW Office for Research and Economic Development.

- Only internationally oriented research proposals will be considered.
- Applications must include a proposal narrative of no more than three (3) pages and a detailed, feasible and cost efficient budget, noting any existing funding.
