The University of California Pacific Rim Research Program is a competitive grants program primarily supporting collaborative research by UC faculty and graduate students and their colleagues in other institutions.
The Pacific Rim Research Program promotes the study of the Pacific Rim as a distinctive region. For the purposes of this Program, the term "Pacific Rim" encompasses all areas and nations that border the Pacific Ocean, including Pacific America, Southeast and East Asia and the Oceania. Recognizing that the interaction of peoples and states in the region has generated new issues of common concern, the Program places priority on research that is new, specific to the region, and collaborative -- reaching across national boundaries and bridging academic disciplines. Proposals may come from any discipline and should address questions that contribute to an understanding of the Pacific Rim region as a whole.
The Asia Institute manages the proposal review and submission process at UCLA.
