The University of California Humanities Research Institute (UCHRI) invites proposals for Short-term Collaborative Research Residencies at our facilities at UC Irvine during the 2014-15 academic year.

Who Can Apply: UC Ladder Rank Faculty. The convener must be a UC ladder rank faculty member who will be responsible for the organization and execution of the proposed project. Graduate students may participate as members of the group, but not as convener.
Funding Source: UCHRI
Deadline: November 13, 2013 (11:59 pm PST). Apply online via FastApps (opens on October 9, 2013).
Funding Decision: It is expected that awards will be announced in February 2014. Final awards are contingent upon available funding.

Program Overview
UCHRI invites proposals to use our on-site institutional resources — which include furnished apartments and meeting rooms on the campus of UC Irvine — for short-term working retreats or research residencies. Committed research groups are invited to come to UCHRI to work together on a project already well underway and with a designated outcome in sight.

Residencies may run anywhere from a week to a month, depending on need and availability. This program does not provide course buyouts; however, the grant will cover reasonable costs of relocation to UCHRI and time in residence. Residencies are available for a team of at least two and no more than ten residents representing any discipline or field in the humanities and interpretive social sciences; or in interaction with scholars, artists, scientists, and experts across disciplines. Participation by faculty from a range of UC campuses and disciplines and at all levels of career development is required.

Eligible projects include research that significantly adds to knowledge and understanding of the humanities. Additionally, priority will be given to proposals that address significant issues and problems within or across given fields, are innovative in their design, and promise concrete outcomes beyond the drafting of a statement or a list recommendations. All grantees are expected to communicate the results of their work to the appropriate scholarly and public audiences. UCHRI encourages proposals to consider this component of the grant well in advance of the residency.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact a respective campus representative on the UCHRI Advisory Committee for advice regarding the collaborative project.

Project Description
The project description should describe the collaborative project and provide the name, campus affiliation, and a brief biography for each of the proposed participants of the group.

Proposals should also clearly identify the proposed outcomes/deliverables of the residency. Priority will be given to proposals that address significant issues and problems within or across given fields, are innovative in their design, and promise concrete outcomes beyond the drafting of a statement or recommendations.
