2017 Graduate Collaborative Research Awards
The application call for the 2017 Graduate Collaborative Research Awards is now open. This is the new name for the Graduate Research Projects which were piloted in 2016. These research awards enable doctoral candidates to develop and implement international research collaborations within the U21 network. The awards are very flexible and we encourage doctoral candidates, with the support of their supervisors/advisors, to think innovatively about how their research could benefit from engagement with other members of the U21 network. Applications must include doctoral candidates from at least three different U21 member institutions, from at least two different countries to be eligible.
- Projects can be in any discipline or cross-disciplinary and should aid the development of transferable skills for doctoral candidates, allowing them to work independently, as well as in teams, on activities that benefit their doctoral research.
- These projects aim to give doctoral candidates a global view of problem solving and group work, and facilitate cross-cultural working practices.
- Publically accessible outputs are expected from each project; the form of the outputs will depend on the nature of the project.
- At least 3 U21 member institutions — from at least 2 countries — must be involved in each project; there must be at least one doctoral candidate from each U21 member involved in the project.
- In 2017 the allocated budget for the awards is US$30,000. It is expected that several Projects will be supported.
