CALL FOR PROPOSALS—UCSD LATINO STUDIES RESEARCH INITIATIVE
The UCSD Latino Studies Research Initiative (LSRI—formerly the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity) is soliciting proposals from UCSD faculty and graduate students engaged in research in the area of interdisciplinary Latino studies to fund research projects for the summer 2008 term. Funded under the auspices of the University of California Committee on Latino Research (UCCLR), LSRI is part of a UC system-wide effort intended to support research, information dissemination, and publication activities of UCSD faculty and graduate students engaged either in either primary or comparative research on the United States’ burgeoning pan-Latino population. While intended to fund work focused on Latinos in the United States, LSRI also encourages submission of proposals that have a transnational focus as well.
The LSRI Steering Committee will make awards of $4000 for successful UCSD faculty applicants and $3000 for graduate student applicants. Priority will be given to first-time applicants.
Applicants should send a current CV along with a 3-5 page research proposal describing the proposed project, research methodology,
anticipated publication venue, and contact information to David G. Gutiérrez, Chair—LSRI Steering Committee, c/o Department of History, MC 0104 by June 9, 2008. Research awards will be announced June 16, 2008. For further information, contact Professor Gutiérrez at ude.dscu|zerreituggd#ude.dscu|zerreituggd.
