The Latin American Institute (LAI) will fund UCLA working groups composed of UCLA faculty and/or graduate students. Applications from across the disciplines are welcome. Funds may be used to invite speakers to campus, host small symposia or plan meetings. Each funded group is eligible to receive up to $5,000 based on the merit and proposed budget of the group. Funds must be used by June 30, 2014.
Applications must include:
1.) a one-page description of the working group’s focus
2.) a list of participants
3.) an outline of proposed activities
4.) a budget proposal
Preference will be given to interdisciplinary proposals that include more than one Latin American country and that have the potential to result in extramural funding. All funds must be used by Spring quarter 2014. Applications for renewal of current funding must include a full report of activities undertaken during the current funding period.
Application deadline is Friday, May 17, 2013.
