Description: The International Research Grant is designed to promote original research collaborations and partnerships between UArizona faculty and researchers with their international counterparts. Applicants may request up to $50,000 to spend on activities leading to extramural proposal submission for international research and development projects. An international collaborator and/or institution is required and must be documented in a letter of collaboration or support; those that have matching funds will be given priority.

Note that only letters written on official letterhead and signed by the international collaborator(s) will fulfill this requirement. Email correspondence will not be accepted as evidence of collaboration or support. The letter must be an original letter for this grant and not repurposed from a previous grant.

Proposal preparation, submission, and processing information are available in the RII Proposal Preparation Guide (PPG) v.8, which is downloadable in the Arizona Cultivate competition. The PPG includes requirements for the project narrative and supplemental documents. It is strongly encouraged that interested applicants read the PPG in full, as proposals that do not match the PPG will be returned without review.

Please note there is a new budget approval process that utilizes an applicant driven routing step after submission. Applicants will input the email address of their business officer or award/research administrator when prompted at the end of the application prior to submission. The email address should be for the person who has authority to create, review, and approve the budget. The system will send a link for approval via the email listed to the business officer or award/research administrator where they may confirm they reviewed and approved the submitted budget. This approval step is required before an application is accepted for compliance checks and formal review. The deadline for business officer or award/research administrator is September 28, 2023 at 05:00 pm. so it is recommended to communicate with this individual about your budget and this process in advance.
