U21 Global Education Enhancement Fund

U21 is launching a Global Education Enhancement Fund to support our members in delivering and enhancing higher education for a rapidly changing and uncertain future.

Partnerships of two or more U21 member universities can apply for this fund, working together to design better solutions for online teaching, learning and assessment, which can be subsequently shared as resources within the U21 network. The goal of the fund is to strengthen the network’s overall capacity to respond to current and future challenges in global education.

How the Global Education Enhancement Fund works

The Global Education Enhancement Fund will make awards of $5000 per project partner for proposals to enhance digital capacity within the U21 network, creating best-in-class solutions to virtual teaching, learning, assessment and/or internationalisation.

Funding may be used for technology set-up costs (such as digital or supporting physical infrastructure), training or course design events. The collaboration does not need to include virtual student exchange or multi-national delivery, although these goals may form part of the project.

Preference will be given to proposals which:

  • create tangible resources that can be easily shared with other partners across the network
  • address pressing educational/internationalisation needs shared by members
  • support member institutions that may not be as advanced in their digital provision as other partners
  • produce tangible and shareable outcomes in a relatively short period of time (e.g. 6–9 months).

Applications close at 12pm GMT on 11 May 2020. Visit the U21 website  to learn more.
