The Mellon Advancing Intercultural Studies grant will support 4 research seminars comprised of four faculty, four graduate students and four undergraduates. These teams of 12 will convene for one quarter each over the next 2 years to conduct in depth research on various aspects of intercultural engagement in a culturally diverse climate. Participating graduate students will receive a stipend and payment of university fees and tuition. This award does not cover any non-resident supplemental tuition or the $2 per unit technology fee.
