The 2018 cycle includes the following programs. Competitive programs will be reviewed and ranked by at least three faculty members from different fields. Awardees will be notified in mid-January 2018.

Funds normally must be spent before January 15, 2019, although projects that show demonstrated advances may request an extension of up to eight months. Funds are available immediately after award. Documentation requirements must follow university guidelines. A two-page report summarizing outcomes is required at the end of the funding period. Grantees are also invited to present their work in the institute's Research Lunch Series.

Please note, in order to broadly support faculty working on regional issues, faculty are eligible to receive funds in one category only. For working groups, that means a faculty member may not be a principle investigator or lead convener, but may be a group member.

Faculty Working Groups and Individual Seed Grants

Deadline December 15, 2017

 

Interdisciplinary Working Groups and Individual Seed Grants


The purpose of these grants is to assist faculty to establish or continue interdisciplinary collaboration for potentially self-sustained, longer-term projects. Funding is commensurate to the proposed activities and outcomes of the group. Groups that establish a strong track record in the first year of funding will be given priority consideration in future calls, where appropriate. Proposals that bring wide interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary approaches to bear on important problems or questions are especially encouraged. Funds may be used for any justified expense except researcher salary.

Research Groups


Funding leading to research publications and/or grant applications may apply for up to USD 7,500. Collection of pilot data for grant applications may be included. Groups must have at least three members from two academic units. Groups with members from different schools or colleges are especially encouraged. Please limit your project description to a maximum of 1,500 words.

Discussion Groups


Funding for discussion groups with limited outside speakers may apply for up to USD 1,500. The purpose of these groups are to explore or further develop collaborations across disciplines. Doctoral or Masters of Fine Arts students may be part of these groups but not lead them. Discussion groups that establish a strong record of collaboration and engagement may ask to be considered for establishment as one of the institute's priority research area with additional funding made available for programming.

Individuals may request up to USD 3,000. Please limit your project description to a maximum of 1,500 words.

Manuscript Workshops

The University of Miami Institute for Advanced Study of the Americas will host up to two workshops for advanced book-length manuscripts on topics related to Latin America, the Caribbean or/and hemispheric Miami during the Spring 2018 to Fall 2018 academic semesters.

The workshops will bring three senior scholars in the field, two of whom are external, to intensely review, comment upon and discuss the manuscript. Faculty close to promotion will be given special consideration, but any full-time faculty member may apply.

Manuscripts intended for renowned academic presses are prioritized. Workshop participants are selected by the University of Miami faculty member and will receive a USD 500 stipend in return for a commitment to read and comment on the manuscript. External scholars’ travel expenses are paid and a workshop meal for participants will be provided. Please limit your project description to a maximum of 500 words.

Application deadlines are announced during open calls.
