Sometimes a small investment yields very big results, and GHI travel grants can work that way. Helping young faculty and staff make their way to far flung corners of the globe can be the first step in establishing a new program or the final step to complete a project.

Travel grants of up to $2,500 each will be awarded to faculty and staff, based on the scope of activity.
