Open to non-UCLA faculty and graduate students from institutions of higher learning with minimal access to substantial Latin American research resources.
Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, these grants are designed to allow researchers from other U.S. universities to use the vast resources of the Latin American collection at UCLA on a short-term basis. Awards of up to $1000 each will be made to cover lodging, transportation and meals. Grant recipients are expected to spend at least one week in Los Angeles. Upon completion of their stay, grant recipients are asked to provide receipts of all expenses for reimbursement; as well as two page statement which summarizes their research findings and outlines how their work at UCLA enhanced their projects.
The UCLA Latin American Institute will award the grants based on the relevance of the proposal to the holdings of the UCLA libraries, the merits and significance of the project, and the qualifications of the applicant. Grant funds expire on August 14, 2013.
Applicants are required to submit a Research Proposal, CV, and a budget.
