TSL Cross Regional Grants were created as part of our efforts to generate more collaboration across the four TSL regions (North America, Central and South America, Europe and Africa, and Asia, Australia and New Zealand). One grant aims at doctoral students to study abroad and the other more broadly focuses at driving collaborative research. All applicants for these grants must be registered TSL members.
1) Cross-region Collaborative Grant: This grant is open to any two or more TSL members, located in at least two of the four TSL regions (North America, Central and South America, Europe and Africa, or Asia, Australia and New Zealand), who intend to collaborate on a research project. In the interest of generating new collaborative ties across boundaries, proposals from junior faculty and those who have not already conducted this type of collaborative research are most heavily encouraged. Preference will be shown to those who have exhibited a commitment to TSL. This grant may be used to fund travel, lodging or other expenses incurred in bringing the collaborators together. It is expected that recipients will present their research at the earliest possible INFORMS, TSL, or VeRoLog conference (if applicable).
2) Cross-region Doctoral Grant: This grant is open to any TSL member currently working towards a PhD who would like to spend time studying at an institution located outside of his/her home region. This grant may be used to fund travel, lodging or other expenses incurred during the grantee's visit. It is expected that the grant recipient will present at the earliest possible INFORMS or TSL conference.
