Message from the Provost: Faculty Research Grants 12/4/13

Since 2004 the Center for Global Studies (CGS) has offered grants to support faculty seeking to engage in scholarly research on topics related to globalization. I am pleased to announce that in addition to the Faculty Research Grants, CGS has created new Research Workshop Grants for a one-day research workshop comprised of a small group of Mason faculty and at least two external participants to engage in interdisciplinary study of a global topic.

I invite you to review the Faculty Research RFP and the Research Workshop RFP, also available online at CGS Faculty Research Support. Please consider applying for CGS funds to support your global research. The deadline for both applications is February 12, 2014.
