Global Engagement Funding

Drexel supports a wide variety of global and international experiences for Drexel students, faculty, and staff through its Global Engagement Funding Award program. Applicants may apply for an award of $250-$2,500 in support of a variety of endeavors that support Drexel's mission to enhance its global impact.

Please note: To optimize our limited budget, funds awarded may be less than the requested amount (or similar).

Applicants may only receive funds once per fiscal year (Current fiscal year: July 1, 2022-June 30, 2023).

Applications will be reviewed on the first Friday of each month on a rolling basis.

Categories for Award Funding include:

  • International Conference, Workshop, Symposium Presentation - Faculty and graduate students may apply for funding to present a paper at an international conference outside the continental U.S.
  • Global Research & Teaching  - This award supports faculty for teaching or research at international partners and students for research experiences abroad.
  • Access, Equity, and Inclusion  - This award supports global engagement experiences with a lens for access, equity, and inclusion. Such activities may include research collaborations with underrepresented locations in international education or global civic engagement, such as community-based learning.
  • Strategic Initiative Fund: Urban Spaces & Civic Engagement - From November 1 to April 2023 we are seeking to support global projects related to "the city" and civic engagement.
  • Early Career Funding for Global Projects - This award supports global engagement experiences for early career faculty.
  • Student Sponsored Events – Student Organizations may apply for funding that supports globally-engaged events, including events that support dialogue and community around global topics or intercultural communication

Applicants will choose a primary category for award funding but will be able to connect to other categories in their personal statement.  

Preference will be given to applications which: 

  • Demonstrate a significant impact on the research and academic career of the applicant(s); 
  • Connect to Drexel’s strategic initiatives; 
  • Have a clear potential to yield long-term ties between Drexel and scholars, organizations, or educational institutions outside of the United States (these applications shall be given particularly positive consideration);
  • Document commitment of funding and support from other institutional sources;

Application includes two uploaded materials: Applicant Statement and Letter of Support. We suggest you fill out this form once all materials are ready for submission.
