Launched in 2014, the fund has so far supported 69 remarkable collaborations and generated so much interest that we are able to support only 30 percent of the outstanding proposals received.

The UW is committed to supporting global engagement for our innovative faculty and promising students. To make that happen, we must grow the Global Innovation Fund and make it a permanent resource. With your help, we can catalyze collaboration across continents and disciplines, promote understanding across boundaries, and develop solutions for problems that matter to us all.
