SUBJECT: || 2013-14 IICAS Faculty Research Planning/Travel Grants|
Applications from UCSD faculty members are invited for the 2013-14
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
