Funding Opportunities

CAFNR International Collaborations Grant Program

The CAFNR International Collaborations Grant was conceived to stimulate CAFNR faculty’s international activities that enhance the teaching, research and/or outreach mission of the college. Because we know of instances where international experiences have been “life-changing experiences” for faculty and students, CAFNR International Programs (CIP) organizes the dean’s annual support and donor’s generous gifts to:

  1. Enhance promising collaborations, and/or
  2. Stimulate value-added activity in existing collaborations that might generate added funding or “next-level” activity on a “priority issue.”

At the beginning of each semester, faculty members make the case for their project in up to three pages.

Congratulations to all our recipients, new and old. We love to hear and share the impact of these funds on faculty’s research programs. Send us your story at CIP@Missouri.edu
