Humboldt - Princeton

Princeton and Humboldt Universities provide resources to build durable ties through faculty-designed collaborations, creating the capacity for faculty and students to enhance and sustain academic cooperation by moving back and forth across national borders with the institutional support of their home and host universities.
The Humboldt - Princeton Strategic Partnership supports departments, programs, and centers seeking resources to sustain on-going transnational research and teaching collaborations and invites proposals from faculty that promote collaborations between the two institutions.
Call for Proposals

Bilateral collaborative research and teaching ventures should include a balanced representation of scholars from both institutions. Applicants are required to meet any national requirements for funding and follow the general regulations of their respective university. Applications that do not meet these requirements will not be considered. This initiative does not encompass student exchange programs for semester and academic year study abroad. All inquiries for graduate and undergraduate study abroad programs should be directed to: HU – International Office (, Princeton – Office of International Programs (

Two types of proposals will be considered:
Seed grants for joint graduate-student workshops. Maximum support: $50,000. 
Large grants for two years activity. Maximum support: $300,000.
A Joint Governance Committee comprised of faculty and senior administrators from both universities will review and consider proposals for awards.

Please direct any questions to Anastasia Vrachnos, Vice Provost of International Affairs and Operations.
