Global Catalyst Grants Program

The Center for Global Engagement offers several internal funding opportunities for faculty, staff, and students at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, including the Institute of Agriculture. These opportunities are referred to as the Global Catalyst Grants Program. The grants are intended to provide partial support that will help build Tennessee’s connections to international colleagues, institutional partners, and opportunities. They will interlink Tennessee with the world beyond US borders and support international activities on the UT campus.

The Global Catalyst grants are a re-envisioning of the Ready for the World grants and support activities in the following areas: faculty international research and partnership development; international programs on the UT campus, and student international research and conference travel. Current opportunities are listed below.
