Request for Proposals for Columbia – Chile Fund

We are delighted to provide you with the request of proposals for the Columbia-Chile fund, which supports research collaboration and joint-projects between faculty and research scientists at Columbia and their counterparts in Chilean universities.

The Program includes a competition for seed funds implemented by the Columbia Global Centers | Latin America (Santiago) aimed at collaborative projects composed of Columbia University faculty and research officers, and members of one or more universities in Chile. The Columbia Global Centers support faculty in a variety of different ways. They are the base of several interdisciplinary research projects, the home of important student programming across our schools and colleges, and the catalyst for partnerships with academia across the world.  In many ways, they are prepared to support your global ambitions, and to further your dialogue with stakeholders in the regions that matter to you.

The deadline for submission of applications is November 22, 2013.  The funds will support one year projects and must be awarded by December 2013. They may go to cover travel, site visits, faculty exchanges, and meeting and workshop costs. The maximum award is $30,000 per project and these will need to be executed during 2014. The competition is open to projects from all fields of scholarly studies and the funds are available to all schools and departments of Columbia University.
