International Collaborative Research Grants

International Collaborative Research Grants (ICRG) provide up to $30,000 to supportĀ research collaborations between two or more qualified scholars, where the principal investigators bring different and complementary perspectives, knowledge, and/or skills together. Supplemental funds are also available to provide essential training for academic research participants in ICRG funded projects.

The International Collaborative Research Grant (ICRG) supports international research collaborations between two or more qualified scholars, where the principal investigators bring different and complementary perspectives, knowledge, and/or skills to the project. Supplemental funds are also available to provide essential training for academic research participants in ICRG-funded projects (co-applicants, students, as well as other professional colleagues).

Must researchers be together in the field?

Normally, we expect the applicant and co-applicant(s) to work together at the research site, but other patterns of collaboration can be considered and should be addressed in the preliminary inquiry.

Must all applicants have a Ph.D to apply for an International Collaborative Research Grant?

Usually yes. But in some cases "equivalent experience" can substitute for the doctorate, and applicants must make the case for this exception in their application.

Do both ICRG applicants have to be anthropologists?

No. As long as the research questions are anthropological, the program encourages collaborations with related disciplines where the project goals require it.

Is my Grant or Fellowship taxable?

However, there may be tax implications in your country of citizenship or tax residence, and you should seek advice from an appropriate tax advisor.

What projects are normally NOT funded by the Foundation?

Requests for translation, photography and filmmaking (not related to an academic research project), publication assistance, and support for institutions or non-governmental (NGO) projects lie outside of the Foundation's remit and are not considered for funding.
