UB’s Offices of International Education (OIE) and Vice President for Research and Economic Development (OVPRED) offer funds of up to $10,000 on a competitive basis to support research projects on important global/international topics that aim to generate applications for external funding within two years of the start of the award. The fund can be used for a variety of project-related expenses, but does not support permanent equipment, software, conference travel, or office supplies. The principal investigator (PI) of the project will receive a course release for one semester, with the course buyout funds going to the PI’s home department. The fund is available for a 2-year expenditure period.
Any tenure-track faculty (including tenured and pre-tenure) who conducts research or creative work on important global or international topics.
