Disciplining Diversity: A Call for a Residential Research Group

Event Date

This call is for participation in the Fall 2020 Residential Research Group, “Disciplining Diversity,” which invites research projects that probe how “diversity” — as instruction, policy, work, imperative, and investment — functions (or doesn’t) within higher education. Please see the research agenda below for more information.

Residential research groups (RRGs) are in essence teams of researchers, often unknown to each other before residency, and assembled to work on a commonly-defined research agenda. They are composed of a range of UC faculty, visiting scholars (including UC postdoctoral scholars), UC doctoral students, and non-UC faculty as resources allow. The organizing premise of the residential research program is that when the challenges of communicating across disciplines are surmounted, breakthroughs in knowledge are possible.

Eligible Applicants: UC Faculty, recently graduated UC PhDs, UC doctoral students (must be ABD), UC staff, and non-UC faculty
Maximum Award: On-site offices at UC Irvine, meeting rooms, multimedia room, reference library, furnished apartments for the residency quarter on as-needed basis (resources permitting), replacement costs to the faculty division, and travel cost to the institute for resident fellows. Faculty are typically required to contribute sabbatical credits. Recently graduated UC postdocs receive salary, and PhD candidates receive stipends.
Application Deadline: Monday, March 9, 2020
Award Announced (Expected): April 2020
Funding Source: UCHRI/UCOP

Final awards for all of our grants are contingent upon available funding. Funding must be spent in accordance with all applicable UC rules and regulations.

Applications must be submitted online via Submittable by 11:59 PM (Pacific time) on the deadline date.
