2011-12 IICAS Undergraduate Student Travel Grants

Annually, the Institute for International, Comparative, and Area Studies (IICAS) at UC San Diego awards grants to undergraduate students for thesis research travel.

IICAS grants are directed primarily to students in the social sciences and humanities. Supported research should be about other societies rather than simply conducted in other societies. Applications from fields outside the social sciences and humanities may be eligible if they deal with global issues, cross-national comparisons, or research on particular societies and also have a substantial human or societal dimension. (Implications for public policy should be made explicit.)

Grant application procedures for the current grant cycle may be found here:
