The Institute for International, Comparative, and Area Studies (IICAS) at UC San Diego is accepting applications for the 2013-14 IICAS Grants competition. Grants are awarded to UCSD faculty for research planning and conferences, and to registered UCSD graduate and undergraduate students for dissertation/thesis research travel.
IICAS grants are directed primarily to faculty and 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. (Implications for public policy should be made explicit.)
Grant application procedures for the current grant cycle may be found here:
- 2013-14 Faculty Research Conference Grants
- 2013-14 Faculty Research Planning / Travel Grants
- 2013-14 Graduate Student Travel Grants
- 2013-14 Undergraduate Student Travel Grants
Applications are due no later than 3pm Monday, March 11th, 2013
