The Atlanta Global Research and Education Collaborative (AGREC) invites scholars to submit collaborative projects across disciplines, institutions, and universities that address a need in our global and local communities. This call aims to address topics with a global connection while being grounded locally. Scholars and practitioners may examine a local and global problem in the form of research, workshop, forum, training program or suggest another approach by collaborating with an organization in Atlanta or a population group that has a global dimension. AGREC seeks to build and strengthen collaborative networks of multi-institutional scholars and practitioners to support global research and education initiatives in the Greater Atlanta region. Housed within the Atlanta Global Studies Center (AGSC), the AGREC initiative is comprised of six universities including Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia State University, Agnes Scott College, Spelman College, and Kennesaw State University.
AGREC intends to grow the collaborative and invites other universities to join this initiative. To apply, a team must include at least two faculty from two different AGREC member institutions, and include at least one community partner. A community partner could be a non-profit organization, a governmental entity, a corporation, a public or private sector organization, and other entities in Atlanta or other parts of the world. Teams may include additional faculty members from any university/college in the Greater Atlanta region. These multi-institutional teams may apply for funding in the range of $5,000-15,000. Funding preference will be given to innovative, transformative collaborative research and education projects in global engagement with significant emphasis on their potential to develop new and strategic sustainable relationships among partners (e.g. universities, companies, NGOs, community organizations) and their impact on Atlanta communities.
