2018-19 University of São Paulo - Princeton Grants (TBD)

Mpala Research Fund (RFP in November)
Princeton University serves as the managing partner for the Mpala Research Centre (MRC), a multidisciplinary field-research station located in Kenya's Laikipia County. The center provides scholars unparalleled opportunities to conduct research on conservation, sustainable human-wildlife co-existence and semi-arid ecosystems in Africa and, increasingly, on climate change, the environment, and public health. In addition, the site provides unique opportunities for faculty in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The Mpala Research Fund will be launched in the first quarter of 2017 and aims to support faculty members from all disciplines who are interested in exploring research opportunities or teaching initiatives at Mpala. Grants of up to $75,000 will be available. Faculty with research interests in Anthropology, the Arts, Climate Change, Economics, the Environment, Geology, History, Journalism, Literature, Politics, Public Health, Public Policy, Sociology, and the Woodrow Wilson School are particularly encouraged to review the call for proposal when it becomes available and contact the Office of VPIAO for further information.   

"Princeton's mission demands a global presence and an international perspective. Our students and faculty now benefit from a vibrant array of networks and programs that connect them with counterparts around the world. Princeton is committed to strengthening those partnerships in the years ahead."

--President Christopher L. Eisgruber
