Penn Global is delighted to issue our Fall 2022 Call for Proposals for our Research and Engagement Grant Program engaging all four of our Research and Engagement Funds, including the Global Engagement Fund, China Research and Engagement Fund, India Research and Engagement Fund, and Holman Africa Research and Engagement Fund.
We welcome proposals for projects across any and all disciplines, fields of study, and countries/regions. In this year's Special Call, we especially welcome ideas for projects that are specifically intended to advance or address one or more of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (scroll down for details)
In your application, you may optionally indicate under which of our four Research and Engagement Funds you'd like to be considered for funding, but it is not required to apply: if awarded, our Research and Engagement Funds management team will allocate approved funds for your project based on your country/countries or region(s) of focus.
Finalists will be contacted in December of their application year. Awards are expected to be announced in the spring of the following year with the goal of journaling funds for June project launches.
Please reach out to email@example.com if you have any questions regarding our application cycle or your Survey Monkey Apply application.
2022 Special Call
This year, in support of our aim to expand engagement with multilateral institutions and cultivate equitable partnerships addressing multinational questions, issues, and challenges, Penn Global especially welcomes ideas for projects that are specifically intended to advance or address one or more of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Promulgated by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 and adopted by all U.N. Member States later the same year, the 17 Goals “are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere.” With a collective aim to achieve the Goals by 2030, U.N. Member States are approaching the halfway mark, a critical juncture to assess progress made and progress needed towards attaining these ambitious goals.
In this context, Penn Global welcomes proposals that seek to advance or address one or more of the 17 SDGs. Proposals meeting the Special Call will articulate how their project intends to advance or address one or more of the 17 SDGs, and may include but are not limited to planned collaborations with partners across Penn and organizations at the U.N. or its key Sustainable Development Goals partners.
