2021 UCD Global Engagement Seed Fund

The UCD Global Engagement Seed Fund is inviting submissions for 2021 from 8 March. UCD faculty and staff can apply under one of three strands: Building Global Partnerships; Global Partnerships in Motion; or New Directions.

These strands have been designed to encourage innovation and imagination in global engagement activities by facilitating a broad range of applications. Each strand has a maximum amount that can be requested so please take note of this when designing your proposal. Full details of each strand and eligibility criteria can be found in the 2021 UCD Global Engagement Seed Fund Call for Applications.
