McCormick Global Initiatives Faculty Networking Initiative

McCormick Global Initiatives supports faculty global engagement activities which initiate and promote McCormick-wide global connectivity. All funds are intended to support mobility/travel/subsistence costs. (No funds can be applied towards research/materials, etc.)

This application divides requests into two categories for mobility: for Faculty Global Networking and for Crown Mobility Funds for NU+Israel Research.

Faculty Global Networking refers to engagement activities which initiate new global connectivity beyond the interests of a single NU faculty member.  For example, travel and lodging support can be provided for faculty coordinated networking initiatives or teaming workshops here at Northwestern or abroad that pave the way for increased global opportunities for the McCormick community.

Crown Mobility Funds for NU+Israel Research refers to a joint research project in partnership with an institution in Israel.  These funds can be used either to bring Northwestern researchers to Israel or vice-versa, but must be applied for by a Northwestern faculty.  Weinberg faculty are also eligible to apply.  This funding can be used for graduate student, post-doc, or faculty travel and subsistence costs on a joint research project.

Note McCormick Global Initiatives can only fund one request per PI per year (please no reoccurring requests). All requests that receive funding must provide a follow-up report detailing how the funds were used. For consideration of funding support, please complete the following application.
