Global Funding Opportunities at UNL

Global Engagement Funding Opportunities

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) has had a long tradition of global engagement on campus and abroad. We are committed to providing opportunities that mutually benefit our students, faculty, staff and peers around the world through various grant programs. We invite faculty to explore the ways in which our funding programs can help you advance your needs.

UNL encourages faculty to increase global perspectives in their courses and programs through globally-focused topics, regional histories and perspectives, foreign languages and literatures, and disciplinary insights from different regions of the world. Such experiences are essential in order for students to develop a global mindset and the skills they need to contribute meaningfully in our rapidly changing and globalizing world.

In an effort to meet such goals and strengthen the university's global engagement, UNL, in partnership with the broader University of Nebraska (NU) Central Administration, offer various teaching and research grants to faculty for upcoming academic years.

Additional inquiries should be sent to:

NU Central Grants

In June 2016, the President and Chancellors of the University of Nebraska (NU) formally adopted a Strategy for Global Engagement. The document emphasizes that “strengthening global engagement and building on a tradition of success with international activities will improve the educational outcomes the university seeks.” As such, NU central administration also offers globally-focused grants to eligible faculty across all four campuses of the NU institution. Below are the current available funding opportunities administered by NU Central for the upcoming academic year.
