UCLA Institute of American Cultures
2015-2016 Visiting Researcher/Scholar
The UCLA Institute of American Cultures (IAC) offers in-residence appointments to support research on American Indians. We especially encourage applications that advance our understanding of new social and cultural realities occasioned by the dramatic population shifts of recent decades, including greater heterogeneity within ethnic groups and increased interethnic contact. In the event that an award is for less than three quarters the stipend will be prorated in accordance with the actual length of the award. For Visiting Researchers, these funds can be used to supplement sabbatical support for the total that does not exceed the candidate’s current institutional salary. Visiting Researchers will be paid through their home institutions and will be expected to continue their health benefits through that source as well; Visiting Researchers will receive a stipend for living expenses and may be eligible for health benefits. Awardees may receive up to $4,000 in research support. In the event that an award is for less than the 9-month appointment, the stipend will be prorated in accordance with the actual length of the award.
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: Visiting Researcher appointments are for persons who currently hold permanent academic appointments and Visiting Scholar appointments are for newly degreed scholars. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and hold a Ph.D. from an accredited college or university at the time of appointment. UCLA faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students are not eligible to apply.
DEADLINE: Completed applications are due by February 4, 2015 at 11:59 pm. Recipients will be notified in April. NOTE: Offer of Fellowship is contingent upon funding availability.
