The Office of International Programs coordinates a number of grants for ACES faculty and staff to receive funding to pursue teaching, research, and extension objectives.
The International Seed Grants Program was initiated by the ACES Office of International Programs at the University of Illinois to stimulate and promote strong relationships between ACES faculty and international faculty that will develop and flourish into larger, sustainable, collaborative efforts in research, education, and outreach. Each project was funded through the Arlys Conrad Endowment Fund.
We are currently accepting seed grant proposals. The deadline is Oct. 1, 2021 - View posting here.

This program provides support to enable ACES faculty to work on projects with researchers based at peer institutions abroad who are funded at a matching level to work on the same project. The contribution from ACES will be made directly to the Illinois scholar and the matching support may be made to the collaborating researcher at the peer institution. Illinois researchers may request up to $20,000 to be used within 24 months. Collaborating researchers abroad must receive at least the same amount to work on the same project.
