The Research Center for the Americas (RCA) is pleased to announce the availability of a limited number of Individual Faculty Research Awards for the 2019–20 academic year for up to $1500. These grants are intended to support high quality research in the areas of interest to the RCA including Chicanx, Latinx, and Latin American, migration, cross-border/hemispheric, and human rights studies.

Recipients may use the awards for student assistance; travel for research or to present work at a professional meeting; books, software packages, and supplies; and miscellaneous services, such as manuscript preparation, translation, transcription, and video documentation. Recipients are expected to acknowledge the RCA's support in any publications related to the sponsored research and to share their findings in a public forum convened by the RCA. Additionally, they must submit a report at the end of the fiscal year. If they are any changes to the budget, they must be approved in advance by the RCA.

Check back in September 2020 to apply for 2020–21 funding.
