International Fund

An objective of the Strategic Research Plan (SRP) is to augment the University’s international reputation through increased global engagement, in particular, by developing and expanding international research collaborations; by building sustained multinational partnerships; and by increasing understanding of global challenges.

The purpose of the International Research Fund is to develop and grow exceptional international research partnerships and collaborations for Queen’s researchers and scholars. The fund will provide seed research money and/or travel money to set up long-term collaborations with international research partners. The program is intended to foster a series of related activities that are identified with specific deliverables, such as joint grant applications, papers, conferences, exhibits and so on that have significant potential to contribute to lasting international collaborations. Faculty members with ongoing international collaborations, where matching funds have been obtained or are actively being sought, are also eligible to apply.
