Faculty Grants

The DRCLAS Regional Office is often directly involved in Harvard faculty members' collaborative initiatives, helping with local connections with institutions, government, universities,  academic meetings, events coordination, logistics,  travel arrangements and office space.

Through the DRCLAS Faculty Grants, the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, Regional Office supports Harvard faculty research, teaching, and professional activities relating to Latin America, with a primary focus on the Southern Cone and Andean countries Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Peru, and Uruguay.

DRCLAS Faculty Grants Currently Offered:

Of particular interest to the region is the new Harvard-UAI Collaborative Research Grant. 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.
• Encourage the flow of people and networking between UAI and Harvard.
• Facilitate the creation of long-term relationships and cooperation between research centers in Chile, UAI and Harvard.

Application Process
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.)

A number of Harvard faculty members have taught for-credit courses in Chile, through the Harvard School of Public Health, Harvard Summer School, and Harvard Kennedy School. In addition, DRCLAS has been helpful in setting up professional school exchanges for graduate students, and has welcomed faculty input with its undergraduate term-time programs.
