Faculty Grant Opportunities

University of California Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC)


IGCC supports research and teaching on the nine UC campuses on the causes of international conflict and opportunities to promote international cooperation. IGCC research, research conference, and teaching grants are designed to stimulate independent research and education projects on international issues of contemporary importance.

General topics of interest to IGCC for the 2002-2003 fellowship and grant competition include, but are not limited to, the following: causes of international conflict; the resolution of international disputes; international and regional cooperation on security, economic, health, environmental, cultural, legal, and social issues; the development and operations of regional and international organizations; the economics, politics and sociology of transnational flows of capital, goods, technology, ideas, and people; transnational social movements and non-governmental organizations; and gender issues and international politics. IGCC supports research and teaching on the nine UC campuses. Collaborative projects involving more than one campus are encouraged.

For the 2002-2003 academic year, IGCC will offer grants for the following research and teaching activities. All IGCC grants are awarded on an annual basis. UC faculty may apply for grants in more than one of the following categories in the same year. Separate applications are required for each proposed project.


The maximum annual support for faculty grants is $18,000. Summer salaries, salary replacement, and stipends for visiting scholars are not covered. Budgets can include summer stipends of up to $2,000* for non-tenured academic senate faculty and tuition and fee remission for eligible research assistants. IGCC grants may be used to provide funding to your department for one course release (up to $8,500) for one quarter. Approval must be obtained from your department chair in writing and submitted with your proposal.


UC academic senate members from all disciplines are eligible to apply. Collaborative work is encouraged; however, the principal investigator must have an integral role in the project. Collaborative projects between UC faculty and the staff of the national laboratories are also encouraged. Repeat funding is possible; however, a project or individuals are not funded for more than three years in a row. Continued funding of prior recipients of IGCC faculty grants is in no way guaranteed. Renewal applicants should provide clear evidence of substantial progress.
