APPLICATIONS ARE NO LONGER BEING ACCEPTED, AS THE COMPETITION IS CLOSED.
New or existing research partnerships comprised of at least one U.S., one UK, and one selected other country (Brazil, China, India, or Indonesia) institution of higher education were invited to apply for a Global Innovation Initiative grant. Partnership research proposals in the area of science, technology, engineering and mathematics were eligible for consideration.
Partnerships must have identified either a U.S. or U.K. lead institution, which is responsible for the grant reporting and fiduciary requirements. U.S.-led partnership proposals must have applied through the U.S. grant competition, administered by the Institute of International Education. U.K.-led partnership proposals must have applied through the U.K. grant competition, administered by the British Council. The same partnership was not allowed to apply to both the U.S. and UK funding streams, however an institution of higher education may have been involved in multiple, distinct proposals. In order to be eligible, institutions from selected other countries must have been attached to either a U.S. or UK-led proposal.
