Rutgers Global is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2022 Rutgers Global Grants. These modest seed grants are offered yearly to all Rutgers faculty, including tenured, tenure-track, clinical, and NTT faculty.
This year, there were four categories of grants: (1) International Collaborative Research, (2) Global Health, (3) Global Environmental Change, and (4) Faculty Innovation in Global Learning.
Johanna Bernstein, Assistant Dean for Global Programs at Rutgers Global, who administered this year’s program noted, “Many of this year’s grants represent relationships that were started virtually during the pandemic. These new virtual connections provided the foundation for some really excellent proposals. It’s exciting to be able to fund these projects now, plan for travel and help these relationships grow.”
Vice President for Global Affairs Dr. Eric Garfunkel added: “Rutgers Global remains committed to internationalization and expanding our global engagement. These grants awarded to our extremely talented faculty represent our continued belief in the power of research and education to help transform lives all around the world.”
Congratulations to this year’s Rutgers Global Grants recipients.
