Board of Trustees International Research Grants

The goal of the Board of Trustees International Research Grant is to support international research at Appalachian. Proposals for research in both basic and applied/professional fields are considered. Recipients deliver a presentation about their research to a public audience that includes Board of Trustees members. These awards fund travel outside the United States to libraries, archives, museums, laboratories, computer facilities, natural settings, government agencies, corporations, etc. that are essential to the research described in the proposal. These awards cannot be used for the following:

  • Travel to conferences to disseminate research results
  • Travel for the purpose of making presentations or keynote speeches
  • Travel for research required for completion of a degree or certificate.
  • Research supplies or other non-travel expenses
