KEY ADMINISTRATORS/KEY SUPPORT STAFF SUBJECT: DEADLINE REMINDER, 2006-07 IICAS RESEARCH CONFERENCE GRANTS
The Institute for International, Comparative, and Area Studies (IICAS)
at UC San Diego previously announced a competition for 2006-07 Research
Conference Grants. This is a reminder that applications are due MARCH
24, 2006, 4:30 PM. See full application instructions below.
Applications are invited for support of a research conference in
international, comparative, or cross-regional studies. The conference
must take place in AY 2006-2007.
IICAS grants are directed primarily to students and faculty 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
dimension. Strong implications for public policy or human ecology are
examples of such a dimension.
MAXIMUM GRANT: $10,000
CRITERIA FOR SELECTION:
* An interdisciplinary, inter-divisional and/or comparative subject.
(Cross-regional projects are particularly encouraged; multi-country
comparative projects also satisfy this criterion.)
* Intellectual originality and breadth
* Number of faculty and graduate student participants at UCSD
* Clear plan for a publishable research product
* Supplementary funding obtained or sought from UCSD and external sources
