The Center for Global Engagement has announced the awardees of the 2022-23 Global Catalyst Programming and Student International Travel Grants.
Global Catalyst Grants provide partial support in building Tennessee’s connections to international colleagues, institutional partners and opportunities abroad. The funds interlink Tennessee with the world beyond U.S. borders and support international activities on the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, campus.

Among the Programming Grant awardees is Teodora Trifonova, a PhD student from the School of Journalism and Electronic Media.
Additionally, nine graduate students were awarded Global Catalyst Student International Travel Grants. These grants support students’ travel abroad for the purpose of attending an internationally-based conference or workshop.
