Resources for Faculty and Programs
The Global Innovation Fund (GIF) is managed by the Office of Global Affairs (OGA) and seeks to seed initiatives and programs that develop cross-college and cross-continent collaborations that enhance the University of Washington’s global reach. We aim to promote the UW’s innovation mindset through initial seed funding for faculty research proposals, leading-edge student experiences and collaborations aligned with the University’s strategic regional priorities.
There are three Global Innovation Fund awards for which UW faculty and researchers are eligible to apply:
- Innovative Program Development Fund (formerly Faculty-led Program Grants)
- Travel for International Partnership Award (formerly Strategic International Partnership Travel Awards)
- China Initiatives Fund

UW Bothell is offering $2,000 grants for International Course Collaborations. The grants are designed to support UW faculty and staff from all UW campuses to develop Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) courses.
The UW Office of Research maintains an extensive list of funding opportunities. Many of these funding opportunities are suitable for projects that feature international work and/or international collaboration.
