Student travel and faculty research abroad grants open for submissions

In honor of the legacy of long-time staff member in WVU’s Global Health Program, the Global Engagement Office at Health Sciences is pleased to announce that the application period for the Nancy Sanders Memorial Student Travel Grant and the Nancy Sanders Memorial Faculty Research Abroad Grant is now open.

Nancy was instrumental in establishing WVU’s highly successful and nationally distinguished Tropical Medicine Course. She enjoyed meeting people from all over the world, and she made every visitor feel welcomed and loved. In the same spirit of her tireless work, hospitality and kindness, the Global Engagement Office administers these grants to support the development and cultivation of international collaborations for faculty and students.

Up to ten student awards of $2,000 each are available for the academic year. One faculty global pilot research award of $10,000 is available.

Applicant eligibility, program details and application instructions can be found on the Global Engagement Office website. The deadline for submission for both grant awards is Friday, September 30.
