Click on the button that best describes your application type for more information:
The Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies (USMEX) at the University of California, San Diego invites applications for fellowships for the 2013-2014 academic year. The Center’s Visiting Fellows Program is the largest residential fellowship program in the United States for research on Mexico. Each year the program brings together scholars from the social sciences, history, and related fields.
We in particular encourage University of California graduate students to apply to the program. The majority of the fellowship awards are for residential periods between 4 and 9 months in duration. Fellowships generally start at the beginning of the academic year and are not given over the summer months (July-September). Stipends are determined by UC general policies and funding availability.
Priority will be given to proposals on social policy, public health, governance, discrimination and poverty and local development; although, the Center will consider supporting research in other more general studies. For a current list of visiting fellows and their research projects click here. Awards have been given in the past supporting research on contemporary Mexico, Mexican history, and U.S.-Mexican relations. Comparative studies with a substantial Mexico component are also encouraged.
We are currently not accepting postdoctoral applicants. Please click on the button above for information about a funding opportunity through UCMEXUS.
