Call for CISSR Faculty Fellowship Proposals 2019-2020

The Center for International Social Science Research (CISSR) invites University of Chicago faculty to submit proposals to join our cohort of Research Fellows for the 2019-2020 academic year. Through our Faculty Fellows program, CISSR funds individual and collaborative international, transnational and global projects that address contemporary and historical questions. Projects should be theoretically informed and empirically grounded and should stand to benefit from critical dialogue across disciplinary, methodological, and geographic boundaries.



University of Chicago faculty in any discipline or unit are welcome to apply. Priority will be given to projects led by faculty in the Division of the Social Sciences.



Submit applications via UC Funding Portal no later than 11:59 pm CST on December 3, 2018.


Financial Support

CISSR provides up to $25,000 for faculty research projects at any stage of development. Funds may be used for a wide range of research-related activities, including field and archival research, purchasing data, research assistance, or organizing a conference to plan and publish a special issue or edited volume.
