IICAS is no longer accepting applications for the 2013-14 IICAS Undergraduate Student Research Travel Grants.
Application Deadline: 3 PM, March 11, 2013
The Institute for International, Comparative and Area Studies (IICAS) at UC San Diego is pleased to announce a competition for 2013-14 Undergraduate Student Research Travel Grants to support senior honors thesis research by undergraduates in international, comparative, and area studies. The awards are intended to partially offset travel expenses incurred in the U.S. or abroad. 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. Strong implications for public policy or human ecology are examples of such a dimension.
Awards will be made for research travel between June 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014. Awards will not exceed $1,000.
All registered UCSD undergraduate students.
Due to safety concerns, IICAS will not fund student travel to areas listed on the U.S. State Department's Travel Warning site.
