The Center for Urban and Global Studies currently offers two grants in support of faculty research and engagement.


CUGS Arts Initiative Grants

The Center for Urban and Global Studies (CUGS) provides funding to highlight creative expression that engages urban and global themes and forges stronger connections between the communities of Hartford and students, faculty, and staff at Trinity. Any member of the Trinity faculty may submit a proposal.


Technos International Week

One faculty member and two students are invited for a two-week trip to Japan to participate in Technos International Week held in Tokyo every year in June. Technos International Week is an event organized by Technos International College of Japan. Its goal is to promote international exchange and understanding between the international guests and the members of the host institution, as well as to offer the guest group the opportunity to experience and appreciate Japanese life and culture. Trinity College is one of 10 colleges and universities from around the world to participate.
