DII Funding Opportunities

Graduate Working Groups on Global Issues

The Office of Global Affairs (OGA) invites proposals for interdisciplinary, student-driven groups with a global focus. We expect students to form a working group that will meet at least four times per semester. OGA will provide up to $1,000 annually per working group for expenses related to meetings. Additional funds may be requested for:  

  • Reading and audio-visual materials 
  • Mini conferences 
  • Seminars 
  • Symposia 
  • Workshops 

The priorities will be given to the proposals that align with OGA’s strategic priorities, such as 

  • Global justice and equity 
  • Climate change 
  • Indigeneity 
  • Work in low and middle-income countries 
  • Engagement with global partners 

We encourage the formation of working groups comprised of members from at least two different disciplines. OGA expects to support 8 to 10 groups annually. Working groups from previous academic years are eligible to reapply for funding in subsequent competitions. 

The deadline to submit the proposal is Friday, September 22nd, 2023.

For any questions related to these working groups or the application process, please contact Rohini Thakkar (rohini.thakkar@duke.edu).
