Sandra Wulff, Program Coordinator of the UC Pacific Rim Research Program, will be meeting with UCLA faculty and graduate students interested in research or conference grants.
The Pacific Rim Research Program (PRRP) promotes the study of the Pacific Rim as a distinctive region. Here, the term "Pacific Rim" encompasses all areas and nations that border the Pacific Ocean, including Southeast Asia and the Pacific islands. 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 region as a whole.
Proposals must be received via the PRRP website by 5 p.m., Monday, December 11, 2006
In accordance with UCLA Contract and Grant Policy, faculty and staff who are eligible to be Principal Investigators can apply for the Pacific Rim Research grants. Graduate students may apply if their advisors agree to serve as the Principal Investigators of record.
Copies of the application can be downloaded from the UC President's Office at: http://www.ucop.edu/research/pacrim
For further information on preparing a proposal and the application process please refer to the detailed instructions in the Call for Proposals and Guidelines.
NOTE: The deadline for applications has changed. Earlier announcements posted in some departments and on the President's Office web site may have an earlier date.
The deadline for proposals for 2007 – 2008 awards is 5 p.m. on Monday, December 11, 2006.
