Funding to participate in CIVIS

The University of Glasgow has dedicated funds to participate in CIVIS opportunities as a full member of the Alliance.

We are committed to support staff and students in joining the CIVIS community to co-create academic programmes, to extend their professional network, and to develop their skills.

Funding for staff

The University of Glasgow has dedicated funds to support staff engagement in CIVIS activities and staff mobility within the Alliance. 

If you would like to participate in the co-creation of a programme, respond to a CIVIS call for proposals, or participate in one of the staff activities, please contact civis@glasgow.ac.uk to discuss your project. 

If you are already involved in an activity, we’d love to hear from you too. 

Please note that, as a result of the UK not associating with the Erasmus+ programme, UofG staff cannot access CIVIS EU funding.
