The Duke University Center for International & Global Studies (DUCIGS) invites proposals for interdisciplinary, student-driven groups with a global focus. We expect students to form a working group that will meet at least four times per semester. DUCIGS will provide up to $1,000 per working group for expenses related to meetings; additional funds may be requested for: reading & audio-visual materials; mini-conferences; seminars; symposia; workshops; etc. DUCIGS expects to support 8 to 10 groups annually. In addition, we are pleased to announce that Africa Initiative and Global Asia Initiative have agreed to provide funding for support of working groups interested in themes related to Africa and trans-Asia. We encourage the formation of working groups comprised of members from at least three different disciplines.
Some examples of past working groups include: Global Environmental Health & Energy; Informed Choices for Equitable Development; Humor & Politics; Entrepreneurship & Preventive Medicine in Global Health; Slavery, War & Gender; Ocean Policy; Electricity in Latin America & the Caribbean; and Money, Finance & Culture.
