The program’s primary objective is to strengthen connections between UAI and Harvard through innovative research projects in all disciplines, including but not limited to technology, design, humanities, science, engineering, health, public policy, business, and education.
The specific objectives are to:
• Promote joint research between Harvard scholars and academics in Chile.

• Facilitate the creation of long-term relationships and cooperation between research centers in Chile, UAI and Harvard.
The David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies accepts proposals for faculty grants twice a year, once each semester.(Note, different deadline for the Harvard-UAI Collaborative Research Grant.)
