The UC Consortium for Language Learning and Teaching is a system-wide initiative designed to make the most effective use of UC’s vast linguistic resources and expertise. The consortium fosters collaboration among and across the language programs at the UC campuses with an eye to increasing student access to language study through a combination of the best classroom practices, technological enhancements and study and work-abroad programs.

Multi-Country Research Fellowship Program

2009 – 2010


The Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC) Multi-Country Fellowship Program supports advanced regional or trans-regional research in the humanities, social sciences, or allied natural sciences for U.S. doctoral candidates and scholars who have already earned their Ph.D. Preference will be given to candidates examining comparative and/or cross-regional research. Applicants are eligible to apply as individuals or in teams.

Approximately ten awards of up to $10,000 each will be given to scholars who wish to carry out research on broad questions of multi-country significance in the fields of humanities, social sciences, and related natural sciences. Scholars must carry out research in two or more countries outside the United States, at least one of which hosts a participating American overseas research center. Given changing travel restrictions and/or security warnings to many countries, applicants should contact CAORC before preparing a proposal.

Deadline: Friday, January 15, 2010

SALRC has a limited number of travel grants available to advanced graduate students and non-tenured faculty in South Asian languages whose papers are accepted for presentation at the following upcoming conferences:

2008 Annual Meeting of the National Council of Less Commonly
Taught Languages (NCOLCTL), Madison, WI, April 24-27,

2008 The Computer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium
(CALICO) with The International Association for Language
Learning Technology (IALLT) Conference, San Francisco,
California, March 18-22,

Priority will be given to those who have not received SALRC conference support in the previous 12 months. The SALRC asks that applicants first attempt to receive funding from their home institution before applying for a SALRC grant. Faculty from institutions that do not have a South Asia Title VI Center are especially encouraged to apply. Faculty at South Asia NRC institutions are expected to get support from their home institution. Travel grant requests must be received by SALRC by 4 February 2008.

SALRC will consider those applicants whose papers complement our center’s mission of forwarding the teaching of South Asian
languages and developing the pedagogical skills and tools to do so. For further information on the SALRC’s mission and priorities, visit our website at

Requests to SALRC for support should be accompanied by the proposal abstract that you submitted for the conference, the conference’s acceptance letter, and your proposed budget. Please apply to us via e-mail at
