International Research Travel Grants

Receive funding for travel abroad to conduct research

The Mario Einaudi Center and its associated Programs sponsor the International Research Travel Grants. These grants provide travel support for Cornell University graduate students conducting short-term research and/or field work in countries outside the United States. They also provide travel support for professional students engaged in various academic experiences in the international arena.


Applicants must be enrolled in an approved PhD or Masters degree program at Cornell University, or be enrolled in one of the professional schools. Groups are not eligible to apply as grants are awarded on an individual basis.
