MISTI Global Seed Funds: 2011-2012 call for proposals

MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives (MISTI) offers global seed funds to help MIT faculty and researchers launch early stage international projects and collaboration, and applicants are encouraged to involve MIT students — both undergraduate and graduate — in their projects.

The global seed funds include a general fund for projects in any country and several country funds with their own requirements. Funding may be used to cover travel, meeting and workshop costs to facilitate international projects and collaboration. In 2010, MISTI received 112 requests for funding, and 46 projects were awarded a total of $903,912.

The application deadline is Sept. 19. For more information and to apply visit http://web.mit.edu/misti/faculty/seed.html; send e-mail to misti-gsf@mit.edu
