New Funding For International Research

The Faculty of Science has launched a new initiative to support researchers who collaborate with international partners to address global challenges.

The Global Science Initiative will provide a maximum of $200,000 over two years to fund up to three unique projects that can have a global impact. Each project must involve and have support from at least one international partner institution, such as matching funds, in-kind support or graduate student support.

Projects will be evaluated based on global importance of the issue, strength of the research team, merit of the research proposal, nature of the commitments from partner institutions and diversity of the team and its approach to problem-solving.

The Global Science Initiative is the latest in a series of investments being made to support researchers in the Faculty of Science. A Life Events Supports Program, Research Infrastructure Renewal Fund and Science Research Chairs were introduced last year.

Applications for the Global Science Initiative are due to the Office of the Associate Dean, Research & External Relations, by Friday, March 6 at 4 p.m. For more information, contact Katelyn McKay at mckayk16@mcmaster.ca
