International Science and Education Competitive Grants Program – Deadline Jan. 17

The International Science and Education Competitive Grants Program (ISE) supports research, extension, and teaching activities that will enhance the capabilities of American colleges and universities to conduct international collaborative research, extension and teaching efforts. ISE projects are expected to enhance the international content of curricula; ensure that faculty work beyond the U.S. and bring lessons learned back home; promote international research partnerships; enhance the use and application of foreign technologies in the U.S.; and strengthen the role that colleges and universities play in maintaining U.S. competitiveness. The maximum award is $100,000. CALS dairy scientists have won this award in the past; contact Kent Weigel or Michel Wattiaux for information.
