The JMU International Development Grant (IDG) is administered by the Center for Global Engagement (CGE). Grants will be reviewed and, if approved, awarded to instructional faculty, administrative faculty, professional and classified staff throughout the year on a competitive basis.

*At this point, CGE is not providing any IDG support until later notice.

Application and Proposals

One copy of the Completed application form should be submitted.

For more detailed information on applications and evaluation, see here.

NOTE: Where relevant and available, letters of invitation from foreign colleagues or conference organizers may be included with the application.

In order to support as many proposals as possible with current funding, International Development Grant awards are limited to $500.

Faculty will generally not be awarded more than one grant in a 12-month period. The 12-month period begins on the travel departure date. Preference may be given to individuals who have not been previously supported by the program. The CGE usually supports only one request per department for a given conference. Notice of award will be communicated through email.

Financial Procedures

Once a grant has been awarded, information will be provided to the recipient on the process of making the funds available for spending. Funds will not be awarded to the department until after the travel or expense has been completed. Our office will communicate with your Administrative Assistant to obtain supporting documentation before transferring the funds.
