Finding Funding

Funding Opportunities for International Projects

Global IDEAS curates external funding opportunities for international research from a comprehensive suite of sources, along with our knowledge of the donor landscape. These opportunities are compiled in one weekly email newsletter, available only to MSU faculty, staff and students.


Opportunities are organized around MSU's four global research priorities: Agriculture & Food; Environment, Energy & Water; Health & Nutrition; and Education & Engagement. We also post opportunities for other disciplines, and international scholarships and fellowships.

Sign up for the weekly Global IDEAS International Funding Update.

Additional Funding Resources

At MSU, International Studies and Programs can sometimes offer or facilitate funding for faculty travel and other needs, often through the Area and Thematic Studies Centers. Opportunities for student funding are also available through a network of scholarships and grant programs.

Other MSU resources that assist in finding external funding include the databases at Office of Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies and the Environmental Science & Policy Program. Also check out the extensive grant resources provided by the MSU Library

Outside of MSU, check out grants.govTerra Viva, and the Foundation Center.
