The intent of this award is to enhance collaboration among a community of scholars working on issues of relevance to the special trilateral relationship among the U.S., Mexico and Canada. Projects across a broad range of disciplines are welcome. Proposals should reflect topics which would benefit from a trilateral perspective and clearly demonstrate a need to spend time in both Mexico and Canada. Grantees may teach, engage in collaborative research or combine both activities. Grants are from 4 months to an academic year, and time should be distributed equally between Canada and Mexico. PhD (or other terminal degree) required.
