Global Opportunity Grants
The Office of Global Programs (OGP) is pleased to offer Global Opportunity Grants to support locally integrative conferences, workshops, and other scholarly and creative events at any of NYU's 12 global sites:
- NYU Accra
- NYU Berlin
- NYU Buenos Aires
- NYU Florence
- NYU London
- NYU Los Angeles
- NYU Madrid
- NYU Paris
- NYU Prague
- NYU Sydney
- NYU Tel Aviv
- NYU Washington, DC
Successful proposals will support all three primary aims of the program:
- Advancing the research, scholarship, and creative work of NYU faculty in a global context.
- Strengthening ties between NYU’s degree-granting campuses and Global Academic Centers by fostering research and collaboration opportunities in and around our global site cities/regions and by diversifying the pool of faculty members who engage with the global sites.
- Enriching the academic and intellectual life of NYU’s Global Academic Centers, including through the development and expansion of enduring relationships with local scholars and practitioners.
Proposals must be submitted by a lead applicant who is an NYU full-time contract, tenured, or tenure-track faculty member from the New York, Abu Dhabi, or Shanghai campus or is the director of one of the 12 global sites.
Proposals that anticipate supplementary funding from additional sources, including the Provost's Global Research Initiatives (GRI) program and/or others, will be considered favorably.
