The IRTAs are being offered to assist research faculty in strengthening international collaborative linkages and to enhance significant scholarly and research impact aligned with WSU’s strategic priorities. These awards are to assist faculty in achieving tangible outcomes e.g. joint publications or research proposals. The awards are intended for research related activities that will advance the faculty member’s scholarly program. All proposals are due by 11:59 p.m. Pacific, November 15, 2016.
