CCPR 20th Celebration Research Symposium

       Seed Grant Announcement                 FY 2019-2020

We are pleased to announce the CCPR Seed Grant program for FY 2019-2020. As part of our NICHD Population Dynamic Branch (PDB) P2C Population Center Infrastructure Grant, we have funds to support CCPR faculty-initiated population research. The goal is to help develop nascent research ideas into larger-scale projects that will eventually obtain extramural funding from the NIH or other extramural funding sources. Depending on the number, size and quality of applications, the amount of each Seed Grant award will vary. Requested funds should be between $5,000 and $20,000 (direct costs) for a project. We expect to have one call for seed grants per year.

The application deadline is Oct 19, 2019

Junior Faculty Course Release Program 

The California Center for Population Research (CCPR) at UCLA is pleased to announce a program for CCPR‐affiliated junior faculty members. The program is in conjunction with the successful renewal of our Population Dynamics Research Infrastructure Grant from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). Support for the course releases comes from the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost (EVCP). The program provides one course release for each of two junior faculty affiliates of CCPR for each year of the five‐year NICHD grant.

Applications for course releases will be competitively reviewed by a committee appointed by the CCPR Directors. The program is a component of the Center’s Development Core headed by Hiram Beltrán-Sánchez. Application instructions and review criteria are below. The deadline for applications for course releases in academic year 2020‐21 is November 9, 2019.

Certificate in Population Research

We are excited to announce a new CCPR initiative. We will award a Certificate in Population Research to CCPR Student Affiliates who meet all of the requirements.
