Columbia Seeks Proposals for Research Projects in Chile

October 21, 2013

Columbia University and the Government of Chile have created the Columbia-Chile Fund to support research collaboration and joint projects between faculty and research scientists at Columbia and their counterparts in Chilean universities.

The Office of Global Centers and the Office of the Provost issued a request for proposals today (Oct. 21, 2013). The aim is to select collaborative projects to be conducted in 2014 that include Columbia faculty and research officers with those in one or more universities in Chile. The maximum award per project is $30,000.

Some project requirements include having a balanced exchange between Columbia and Chilean participants, as well as encouraging student participation. The Santiago Center will manage the program and facilitate travel logistics for Columbia faculty, researchers and students.

The deadline for submitting proposals is Nov. 22, 2013. Please see the request for proposals for more information.
