The Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies at the University of California, San
Diego invites applications for research fellowships and non-stipendiary
Guest Scholar affiliations for the 2009-2010 academic year.
The Center's Visiting Fellows Program is the largest residential fellowship
program in the United States for research on Mexico. Each year the program
brings together scholars from the social sciences, history, and related
fields. The Center's current research interests focus on economic
development and social policy. Specific issues include regional divergence
and inequality; infrastructure and public goods; local government
accountability, corruption, and civil society; social insurance and poverty
The majority of Visiting Fellows and Guest Scholars are expected to be at
the postdoctoral level. PhD candidates who are ABD and have completed a
substantial portion of their dissertations will also be considered. Senior
scholars are encouraged to apply. The majority of the fellowship awards are
for residential periods between 4 and 10 months in duration. Stipends are
commensurate with experience and academic rank.
Awards support research on any aspect of contemporary Mexico, Mexican
history, and U.S.-Mexican relations. Comparative studies with a substantial
Mexico component are especially encouraged. The Center also encourages
proposals from groups of two or more scholars working on a common project.
Additional funding may be available for workshops or short-term visits by
other scholars relevant to the project area.
The majority of the funds are earmarked for individuals who are (1) Mexican
citizens, (2) residents of Mexico of any nationality, or (3) advanced
graduate students, recent PhD recipients, or faculty from any campus of the
University of California system.
In addition to the Visiting Scholars program, the Center's activities
include research projects related to policy and policymaking in Mexico,
conferences and workshops, and a weekly series of research seminars.
