CCPR 20th Celebration Research Symposium

2021-22 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. The deadline for applications for course releases in academic year 2021‐22 is November 2, 2020.
