International Studies & Programs

Finding Funding

The Office of International Research Collaboration works to connect MSU faculty to external funding.


Funding Opportunities for International Projects

OIRC curates external funding opportunities for international research from a comprehensive suite of sources, along with our knowledge of the donor landscape. While we organize these opportunities around MSU's four global research priorities (Agriculture & Food; Environment, Energy, & Water; Health & Nutrition; and Education & Engagement), we also include opportunities from other fields, along with scholarships and fellowships. We send these out in our weekly email funding update, along with any interesting news items or relevant events.

Additional Funding Resources

At MSU, International Studies and Programs can sometimes offer or facilitate funding for faculty travel and other needs, often through the Area and Thematic Studies Centers. Opportunities for student funding are also available through a network of scholarships and grant programs.

Other MSU resources that assist in finding external funding include the databases at Office of Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies and the Environmental Science & Policy Program. Also check out the extensive grant resources provided by the MSU Library and the list of international granting agencies

Outside of MSU, check out grants.govTerra Viva, Newton's List, and the Foundation Center.
