The Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) is currently accepting applications for a Librarian to oversee its library services, archival and digitization programs, and related campus and community relations.
The Inter-University Program for Latino Research is now accepting applications for the IUPLR/Mellon Fellowship Program (academic year 2016-17). The program supports ABD doctoral students in the humanities who are writing dissertations in Latina/o studies.
Each year under the auspices of the Institute of American Cultures, the CSRC hosts a postdoctoral scholar seeking to advance their research pertaining to Chicana/o and Latina/o history, arts, community, or policy.
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has awarded a $200,000 grant to the CSRC to support the three-year archival project “Providing Access to Mexican American Social History in Los Angeles, 1960s and 1970s.” (Photo by Pedro Arias, 1971)


Since its founding, the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) has played a pivotal role in the development of scholarly research on the Chicano-Latino population, which is now the largest minority group and the fastest growing population in the United States. Our research mission is supported by five distinct components: a library with special collections archive, an academic press, collaborative research projects, public programs and community-based partnerships, and a competitive grant and fellowship program.
