ASAM Undergraduate Research / Arts Grants Program for 2012-2013
The UIC Asian American Studies Program is pleased to announce the ASAM Undergraduate Research / Arts Grants Program for 2012-2013. These competitive grants, of up to $1000, are designed to facilitate and encourage Asian American and Pacific Islander students to pursue independent research and/or creative-arts projects about and with Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. A total of up to twenty grants will be awarded on a merit basis. Projects that have a Chicagoland and/or Midwest component will be prioritized in order to encourage local and community-engaged work. Awardees will be supervised by a faculty mentor, and must demonstrate adequate progress to receive full funding. Awardees will be required to present their completed projects at the 2013 ASAM Expo in April to share their work with the broader UIC community. More info and grant application.
