2013-14 IICAS Faculty Research Conference Grants

IICAS is no longer accepting applications for the 2013-14 IICAS Faculty Research Conference Grants.

[Maximum grant: $10,000]

Application Deadline:  3 PM, March 11, 2013

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 2013-14.

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.)

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


  • Members of the UCSD Academic Senate
