The Luksic Collaboration Grant’s third and last application deadline for the 2013-2014 academic year is fast approaching. Twelve Notre Dame faculty from five different schools/colleges received Luksic grants in the first two rounds (view a list of awarded projectst).
“We are extremely pleased with the high level of interest the Luksic grant opportunity has generated. Several faculty members have put their awards to immediate use and are now in Santiago during Spring Break to work on projects with their PUC colleagues,” writes Robert Norton, Notre Dame International Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs and Research, from Santiago.
Supported by a gift from Chilean benefactor Andrónico Luksic to Notre Dame, Luksic grants enable faculty, PhD students, and representatives from Notre Dame to work, study and collaborate with their peers at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (PUC) in Santiago. The objective of the funding is to encourage the Notre Dame community to find new ways to engage with colleagues from PUC (on research, exchanges, conferences, etc.) and in particular to increase the number of Notre Dame faculty and staff going to Santiago.
Notre Dame faculty and staff may apply for grants of up to $10,000 – the next proposal deadline is April 15, 2014. Please consult the Request for Proposal (pdf) for more information and submission guidelines.
The Luksic Grants program was established, with the collaboration of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, through a formal agreement of cooperation signed between the University of Notre Dame and PUC on April 29th, 2013.
