Delegations and Visitors:

The Office of International Affairs is a first point of contact if you wish to visit the campus and you are:

  • seeking (or have established) a formal institutional or cross-faculty partnership with McMaster University
  • representing a foreign government or agency

Visits with specific academic departments or faculties can be arranged by directly contacting the department or faculty.

International Initiatives Micro-Fund (IIMF):

Attention McMaster Researchers: The current round of funding has closed. Please check this page for future announcements regading the next round of funding in 2017. The IIMF is intended to provide small investments in first-time international research contacts or initiatives, typically originated by individual faculty members. It is meant to reduce the threshold to international research activities and serve as seed funding, ideally leading to joint projects and international partnerships.

  • Each project is eligible to receive up to $5000 in funding and we expect to make up to 10 such investments in future Rounds.
  • The application process is simple and straight-forward, applicants should submit a one-page description of the project and the intended use of the funds, accompanied by a CV (NSERC Form 100, or equivalent).
  • Applications must also include an endorsement/signature from your Dean or appropriate supervisor.

For more information or to submit your application, contact Peter Mascher at avpint@mcmaster.ca.
