Grants for Regional Faculty Groups

Stimulating Regional Interactions and Connections

Stimulating interactions and building stronger regional conversations among UC Davis faculty working in the same region of the world, the Global Affairs Grants for Regional Faculty Groups engage faculty from a wide range of disciplines, who share knowledge and interests in advancing regional collaborations here at UC Davis and abroad. 

Funding brings together our UC Davis faculty who are working in the same region, through networking events, joint meals, speaker series, or other similar events on campus. Funding is for events to be held at or near UC Davis, not abroad.
