Bring a collaborator here

As part of the Brazil Initiative, Emory hosts a Fulbright Professorship Award for Brazilian Visiting Scholars at Emory. These scholars engage with Emory faculty and students, contributing to university-wide momentum around Portuguese and Brazil-related studies. Emory is one of only a few U.S. institutions that will host these senior scholars. If you are collaborating with a Brazilian peer, consider urging them to apply for this opportunity. The next application cycle will begin in early 2018.

FAPESP (São Paulo Research Foundation - Brazil)

FAPESP and Emory University have signed a Research Collaboration Agreement aiming to implement scientific and scholarly cooperation between researchers from Emory and from the State of São Paulo, Brazil, through the funding of joint research projects. 

Global Research Cooperation Funding (South Korea)

Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea and Emory University have partnered to pursue mutually beneficial academic and research collaborations. Opportunities abound to strengthen existing engagement within the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, Candler School of Theology, Emory College of Arts and Sciences, and Goizueta Business School, as well as to foster new connections.

The Global Research Cooperation Funding (GRCF) provides funding to support initiatives in internationalization. The aim is to foster international partnerships in research, teaching and learning, capacity building, and other areas with high profile partners in priority regions. Applicants from any discipline are encouraged to submit funding applications for innovative and sustainable programs built around collaborative research and/or learning and teaching initiatives linking Yonsei University and Emory University with each other. The expectation is that these initial projects will lead to long-term international relations and generate significant external funding for on-going collaboration in the future. 

Applications for the 2017 funding cycle are now closed. Check back in 2018.
