International Collaborative Research Grants
Deadline: June 1, 2007

The International Collaborative Research Grant (ICRG) supports international 
research collaborations between two or more qualified scholars, where the 
principal investigators bring different and complementary perspectives, 
knowledge, and/or skills to the project. Supplemental funds are also 
available to provide essential training for academic research participants 
in ICRG-funded projects (co-applicants, students, as well as other 
professional colleagues). By encouraging international collaborations, the 
grant contributes to the development of an international anthropology that 
values and incorporates different national perspectives and resources. By 
providing training funds, the grant helps to build capacity in countries 
were anthropology may be under-resourced.

The grants are for a maximum of $30,000 for the research project.  Proposals 
which include the optional training element can have an increased funding 
request up to a maximum of $35,000, of which no more than $10,000 can be for 
essential training purposes. Under special circumstances grants can be 
renewed to support longer-term research projects. Principal Investigators 
must hold a doctorate or equivalent in anthropology or a related discipline.

The International Collaborative Research Grant program has a two-stage 
application process.  The first stage is the preliminary inquiry, which 
should be made one month before the application deadlines of June 1 and 
December 1. The June 1 deadline is for applicants requesting funding 
starting in January through June of the following year. The December 1 
deadline is for applicants requesting funding starting in July through 
December of the following year.

If an application is considered eligible based on the review of the 
preliminary inquiry, the applicant will be invited to submit a full 
application.  Final decisions are made six months after the application
