AND AREA STUDIES
February 3, 2011
KEY ADMINISTRATORS/KEY SUPPORT STAFF
Applications from UCSD faculty members are invited for support of a research conference in international, comparative, or cross-regional studies. Grants will only be awarded for conferences that propose to examine a specific research question(s). These grants are awarded to UCSD faculty to cover costs for conferences they plan to host. The conference must take place in AY 2011-12.
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: $10,000
Criteria for Selection
* An interdisciplinary, inter-divisional and/or comparative subject.
