The Institute of American Cultures offers in-residence appointments to support research on African Americans, American Indians, Asian Americans, and Chicanas/os. The 2021-2022 IAC Visiting Scholar will receive funding for one or more quarters and may receive up to $35,000 for three quarters (contingent upon rank, experience, and date of completion of their terminal degree). Eligible to apply are U.S. citizens and permanent residents with PhD from an accredited college or university at the time of appointment, or in the case of the arts, an appropriate terminal degree. UCLA faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students are not eligible to apply.
