IAC VISITING SCHOLAR AND RESEARCHER FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM*
The UCLA Institute of American Cultures (IAC), in cooperation with UCLA?s four Ethnic Studies Research Centers (American Indian Studies Center, Asian American Studies Center, Bunche Center for African American Studies, Chicano Studies Research Center) offers fellowships to visiting scholars and researchers to support research on African Americans, American Indians, Asian Americans, and Chicanas/os.
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 Scholar appointments for persons who currently hold permanent academic appointments and 2) Visiting Researcher for newly degreed scholars. In 2014-2015, IAC Visiting Scholars/Researchers will receive funding for one or more quarters, with a maximum stipend of $32,000 to $35,000 for three quarters (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.
