Penn Global Research and Engagement Funds
***This form opens to applicants on August 26th, 2021.***
Penn Global is delighted to issue our Fall 2021 Call For Proposals across all four of our Research and Engagement Funds, including the new Holman Africa Research and Engagement Fund (see below) as well as our existing China Research and Engagement Fund, India Research and Engagement Fund, and Global Engagement Fund.
We welcome proposals for projects across any and all disciplines, fields of study, and countries/regions. This year, we especially welcome proposals for projects that specifically examine or relate to climate change and/or climate justice in a global context. (Proposals are not required to feature a focus on climate change and/or climate justice.)
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 2021. Awards are expected to be announced in Spring 2022 with the goal of funding new projects beginning in Summer 2022.
Please reach out to email@example.com if you have any questions regarding our Fall 2021 application cycle or your Survey Monkey Apply application.
As part of the Holman Africa Initiative, which is funded by a $5 million gift from Wendy Holman (W '97) and husband Wayne Holman, we are excited to invite proposals that would be supported through the Holman Africa Research and Engagement Fund.
The Holman Africa Research and Engagement Fund provides financial support to outstanding faculty research projects from across the University and academic disciplines that
- Are posed to generate new and critical insights on key debates in Africa, specifically sub-Saharan Africa
- Makes significant contributions to fields of study and increases Penn’s substantive visibility among peers in Africa and around the world
- Supports new and enhances existing educational and curricular programs across campus that focus on the study and understanding of Africa
- Identifies synergies between projects that can be brought together under unified faculty leadership to enhance research or educational initiatives and yield greater impact
- Strengthens existing, institutional, and faculty-to-faculty relationships with African partners
Special consideration will be given to projects that focus on sub-Saharan Africa, especially the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
