LOS ANGELES (Jan. 3, 2013) — Applications for the UCLA Visiting Scholar-Researcher Fellowship in Asian American Studies and Ethnic Studies are now available.
The Institute of American Cultures, in conjunction with the Asian American Studies Center, invites applications for support of research on Asian Americans for 2013-2014. The deadline for applications to be received is no later than 5 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013, at the Asian American Studies Center, 3230 Campbell Hall. Awards will be announced in April.
Application forms and additional information are available online at www.iac.ucla.edu/docs/2013-2014/Visiting%20Scholars%20Application.pdf.
The fellowship period is Oct. 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014.
The Visiting Scholar and Researcher Fellowship Program is made possible through the UCLA Institute of American Cultures, in cooperation with UCLA’s four Ethnic Studies divisions: Research Centers (American Indian Studies Center; Asian American Studies Center; Bunche Center for African American Studies; Chicano Studies Research Center). It offers fellowships to visiting scholars and researchers to support research on African Americans, American Indians, Asian Americans, and Chicanas/os.
Visiting Scholar appointments are for persons who currently hold permanent academic appointments and Visiting Researcher 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.
IAC Visiting Scholars/Researchers will receive up to a 9-month academic-year stipend of $32,000 to $35,000 (contingent upon rank, experience, and date of completion of their terminal degree) and will receive health benefits. For Visiting Scholars, these funds can be used to supplement sabbatical support for a total that does not exceed the candidate’s current institutional salary.
Visiting Scholars will be paid through their home institutions and will be expected to continue their health benefits through that source as well; Visiting Researchers will be paid directly by UCLA. All awardees can receive up to $4,000 in research support (through reimbursements of research expenses), $1,000 of which may be applied toward relocation expenses. 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.
