The Institute for International, Comparative, and Area Studies (IICAS) has extended the undergraduate application deadline for IICAS Travel Grants to MONDAY, May 2, 2005. Details and instructions follow.
The Institute for International, Comparative, and Area Studies (IICAS) announces a competition for travel grants to support senior honors thesis research by undergraduates in international, comparative, and area studies. IICAS grants are directed primarily to students in the social sciences and humanities. Supported research should be *about* other societies rather than simply conducted *in* other societies. Applications from fields outside the social sciences and humanities may be eligible if they deal with global issues, cross-national comparisons, or research on particular societies and also have a substantial human or societal dimension. Strong implications for public policy or human ecology are examples of such a dimension.
Due to safety considerations, proposals for travel to countries on the U.S. Department of State's "Travel Warning" list will not be funded by this program. For more information, see the U.S. Department of State's international travel information website at: http://travel.state.gov .
