Penn Global Engagement Fund

The Global Engagement Fund is a competitive grant program that seeds creative, cross-disciplinary projects that will further Penn’s global initiatives.

Primary Goals of the Fund

The primary goals of the fund are to:

  1. Catalyze entrepreneurial research and partnerships in a global context. Specifically, Penn Global seeks to increase global activity and to promote research and engagement on the part of Penn faculty around the world by providing funding for projects that will lead to additional external funding and continue beyond the scope of the Global Engagement Fund;

  2. Develop new insight on pressing global issues in key countries/regions of the world and important global trends; and

  3. Promote collaboration and the integration of knowledge across Schools and disciplines.

The 2019 Call for Proposals is OPEN!
