Faculty Research Seed Grant

The Center for Mexican American Studies, as part of its Higher Education Mission, offers its Research Seed Grant in support of scholarship on Mexican Americans and Latinos. CMAS considers scholarly activities to be policy-relevant if they address policy as a complex set of social practices and projects that involve the cultural, contextual and political dimension of issues that affect Latinos. These can include activities that inform and influence public debates on policy issues, policy formation, and the implementation process, but they do not privilege official governing bodies or traditional approaches to addressing the social problems affecting Latinos.
