KEY ADMINISTRATORS/KEY SUPPORT STAFF
Applications from UCSD faculty members are invited for the 2012-13 IICAS Faculty Research Planning/Travel Grants. These grants support the research and research planning activities of faculty teams whose intellectual interests promise to produce significant collaborative projects. These grants provide intellectual venture capital to encourage new links among investigators and to launch projects that will attract extramural funding. Project funds may be used for research workshops and small conferences, research group meetings, research travel costs, a seminar series linked to a prospective research group, and other activities essential to projects that satisfy the criteria given above. IICAS grants will not be made for individual research.
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. (Implications for public policy should be made explicit.)
Maximum grant: $5,000
