Open Now: Columbia Global Faculty Funding Opportunities

December 04, 2023

Columbia Global just launched five exciting funding opportunities for faculty. These opportunities are designed to support faculty, foster innovation, and create lasting impact. 

Early Career Impact Fellowship:

This year-long program supports early-career faculty to apply research for social impact. The fellowship features a workshop series, summer planning grants, and seed funding designed to position faculty to successfully pursue future funding for social impact work.

2024 Columbia World Projects Impact Awards:

Impact Awards are for Columbia University faculty and researchers with a bold idea for addressing a pressing societal challenge in the pursuit of creating thriving communities in the US and around the world. Proposed solutions must be innovative and have the potential to scale, and must be implemented in partnership with at least one partner external to Columbia University.

Columbia Global Resilience Fund:

The first funding opportunity through this newly established fund aims to harness the University’s intellectual resources and practical expertise to support recovery and resiliency efforts in the regions of Turkey affected by catastrophic earthquakes in February 2023. Projects are sought that aim to generate innovative, feasible, and scalable solutions through interdisciplinary collaborations with in-country institutions. No prior experience in the region is required.

President’s Global Innovation Fund:

Round 10 of the President’s Global Innovation Fund, which supports innovative faculty projects enriched by the infrastructure, expertise, and connections of the Columbia Global Centers, will launch in January 2024.

Center for Political Economy Faculty Grants:

The Center for Political Economy is seeking applications for proposed, one-year projects that will generate new knowledge and networks, facilitate the exchange of discoveries, accelerate the identification of key challenges, and expand the methods scholars use relating to firms and industrial policy, work and labor, and money and finance.

We encourage all eligible faculty to apply to these grants.
