The International Research and Development Division (IRDD) of the Office of International Affairs recently launched the   International Research Seed Grants program. This program was designed to provide “seed” grant funds to support faculty in developing preliminary international research efforts. Supported work should form a pathway towards establishing more ambitious, externally-funded projects.

We received 17 proposals including nearly all major fields of scholarship at Texas Tech. We awarded 12 proposals from five colleges describing work in 13 countries around the globe. The projects recommended for funding include a wide diversity of colleges, departments, and study topics.

This is an annual competition with funds up to $2,000 available every Spring semester.
