Call for Applications: IAC Visiting Scholar Fellowship Program in Ethnic Studies

IAC Visiting Scholar Fellowship Program in Ethnic Studies, 2021-2022
The UCLA Institute of American Cultures (IAC) offers in-residence appointments to support research on African Americans, American Indians, Asian Americans, and Chicana/os. The IAC especially encourages 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. Each 2021-22 IAC Visiting Scholar will receive funding for one or more quarters and may receive up to $35,000 for three quarters (contingent upon rank, experience, and date of completion of their terminal degree). In the event that an award is for less than three quarters or a nine-month appointment, the funds will be prorated in accordance with the actual length of the award. Visiting Scholar appointments are for persons who currently hold a permanent academic appointment. Visiting Scholar funds will be paid through the awardees home institution and awardees will be expected to continue their health insurance through that source. These funds may be used to supplement sabbatical support for a total that does not exceed the awardee’s current institutional salary. Awardees may receive up to $4,000 in research support. The Bunche Center for African American Studies will not have a Visiting Scholar for the 2021-22 academic year.
