Global Collaborative Networks

The Global Collaborative Network (GCN) grants facilitate international scholarly networks that engage Princeton with centers of learning worldwide.  Additionally, GCN grants build and sustain scholarly collaborations that can promote career development in an international context for Princeton scholars at all levels of seniority.  The overall goal is to enhance Princeton-based scholars' efforts to design and participate in global networks by offering resources for the creation and expansion of international collaboration. 

The GCN acknowledges the plurality of approaches to global network building; whole styles and foundations vary by discipline, topic and world region. No particular approach to global collaboration is advocated.

Proposals may come from individual faculty members or groups of faculty, but should have a Princeton faculty member as Principal Investigator. For more information on submitting a proposal, see links below.
