Graduate Grants-Center for Urban and Territorial Studies, Talca, Chile

In early 2011 the Catholic University of Maule and NGO Sur Maule were awarded one of the new Millennium Initiatives in Social Sciences, which aims at the formation of the Center for Urban and Territorial Studies for intermediate cities in Chile. This initiative focuses its research on the social, cultural and economic conditions in the Maule region in recent years from an urban-territorial perspective, with special emphasis on processes developed from the earthquake of February 27, 2010.

Approved projects will be supported financially and methodologically. The maximum amount that can be accessed each investigation is of US $2,700, an amount that will be delivered according to the agreed protocol. Click here for more details.
