UC San Diego’s Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies (USMEX) at the School of Global Policy and Strategy (GPS) hosts the largest residential fellowship program in the U.S. for research on Mexico and U.S.-Mexico relations. Each year the program brings together top scholars from the social sciences, humanities and related fields to form a multi-disciplinary cohort of researchers.
Applications are accepted from Ph.D. candidates who are ABD and have completed a substantial portion of their dissertations.
Residential periods must be between three and nine months in duration. Fellowships may not be over the summer months (July – August). Stipends average $3,000/month for pre-doctoral students and are determined by University of California general policies and funding availability.
Priority will be given to proposals that are scientifically and/or policy-relevant, show a feasible plan of action, and/or will contribute toward a better understanding of Mexico and/or U.S.-Mexico relations. Scholars who wish to expand their knowledge of HIV in Mexico and between Mexico and the U.S. are encouraged to apply. Applications from Mexican scholars are strongly encouraged.
