News: IAC Visiting Scholar/Researcher Fellowship in Asian American Studies and Ethnic Studies

February 4, 2015 - 1:30pm

The UCLA Institute of American Cultures, in conjunction with the UCLA Asian American Studies Center (AASC), invites applications for in-residence appointments for support of research on Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders for 2015-2016. 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 interaction.



DEADLINE: Applications must be received by Wednesday, February 4, 2015. Awards will be announced in April 2015.


FELLOWSHIP PERIOD: October 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016



ELIGIBILITY/FUNDING: 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.


Two types of awards will be offered: 1) Visiting Researcher appointments for persons who currently hold permanent academic positions and 2) Visiting Scholar posts for newly degreed individuals. In 2015-2016, AASC IAC Visiting Researchers/Scholars will receive funding for three quarters, with a maximum stipend of $35,000 (contingent upon rank, experience, and date of completion of their terminal degree). Awardees may receive up to $4,000 in research support (through reimbursement of research expenses).
