MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives (MISTI) is calling for proposals for its latest round of Global Seed Funds — grants that support MIT faculty and researchers in launching international projects and collaboration.

Applicants are encouraged to involve MIT students — both undergraduate and graduate — in their projects.

The seed-fund program includes a general fund for projects anywhere in the world and nine country funds. This year’s grant round includes two new funds for projects in Brazil and China. The award may be used to cover travel, meeting and workshop costs to facilitate international projects and collaboration. In 2009, MISTI awarded $664,793 to 43 projects across the Institute.

The deadline for the current round is Wednesday, Sept. 15. For more details and to download the short application form visit http://web.mit.edu/misti/faculty/.
