About Saybrook Global Grants
Saybrook Global Grants are awarded to faculty who demonstrate commitment and initiative to global engagement and to help underserved populations around the globe. It is Saybrook’s goal that, with the help of these grants, our faculty will be able to expand our university’s network across countries and continents, allowing our students to have connections around the world and make the greatest impact possible. By engaging in global initiatives, our faculty will be able to give students access to resources that can further their studies and research. These grants are made possible by TCS Education System, a non-profit system of colleges of which Saybrook University is a partner.
The awarding of this year’s Saybrook Global Grants coincides with International Education Week, which runs from Nov. 12 to 16, 2018. A joint effort of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, this week seeks to promote programs that will prepare American students to live in and contribute to a global environment. International Education Week also aims to attract students from abroad to the United States in an effort to share ideas and experiences with domestic students and encourage international cooperation and collaboration.
Saybrook University is proud of the work our faculty have been engaging in, both domestically and overseas. With the help of TCS Education System, our Saybrook community will expand to new frontiers and give our students more opportunities to engage in an increasingly connected world.
