About the Seed Grant Program

In 2001, our office established the Seed Grants for International Activities to give life to bold ideas in international programs. So far we have awarded over $1.3 million to 205 diverse programs across the UC Davis campus.

Global Affairs encourages applications for proposals that:

  • Foster international research collaborations
  • Create innovations in internationalizing the curriculum
  • Build new interdisciplinary, international partnerships

Funding ranges from $5,000 to $15,000 per proposal.
