Call for proposals: Area/International Studies research awards

Grants of $5,000 to $50,000 are now available to faculty and staff—working individually or in teams—for one- to three-year projects that advance area and international studies at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

The Mellon Foundation Area and International Studies Research Awards are made possible by the 2012 grant from the Mellon Foundation to support efforts at UW–Madison to develop new, sustainable models for structuring, supporting, and conducting area and international studies.

The International Institute committee responsible for organizing the competition has issued a call for proposals, with submissions due by February 18.
