The funds are used to pay for the eligible operational costs of events that have a collaborative, international component. This can include room rental, transportation, accommodation and catering. Payments to individuals (wages, honoraria, per diem or salary) cannot be paid out with funding granted by this program.
No. Funding provided by this program may not be used to compensate people who worked for or participated in the event.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but it is always best to work with at least several months' notice whenever possible. After all funding has been allocated, no further applications can be considered. This normally occurs towards the end of the spring semester.
Applicants should note at which site and when they wish to hold the event using the online form. Someone from the GRI office will contact the site to inquire if such an event can be accommodated. It is useful to work with a range of dates whenever possible to maximize the likelihood that the site can host. If the site has already agreed to host the event, this should be noted on the application.
The site provides venue and logistical support. It normally does not provide budgetary support, or disbursements.
No. Once we have agreed to provide the funding and transferred a lump-sum to the NYU chartfield that will be used to make event-related payments, organization and planning is up to the department hosting the event.
Yes. We require a spreadsheet showing how funds were used, along with scanned copies of the receipts, for the total amount granted by GRI. This is mandatory as we require it for our records and in the event of an audit. These must be submitted no later than six weeks after the event has concluded. If for any reasons these cannot be provided by the deadline, someone must contact GRI to discuss when these will be provided.
No, it is not necessary. If such a report is being created for other purposes, it can be submitted to our office for our records along with any promotional material, but we do not require this.
Yes. Any promotional material or printed matter generated for or from the event must credit Global Research Initiatives, Office of the Provost. An image file can be provided upon request.
