First release of call: 28 January 2008
Deadline: 15 April 2008

The Institute of Philippine Culture welcomes proposals for the IPC Merit
Research Awards.  With funds provided by the Ford Foundation, the  
awards seek to advance research in the social sciences.  Proponents  
are asked to present a written proposal with  clearly stated research  
objectives, the proposed study's theoretical significance, and the  
research methods required.

Priority areas for research are identified (see below). However, experience
during the past few years has shown that the awards program is able to  
fund all proposals of substantively high quality that fall within the  
purview of basic and applied research in the social sciences.

Priority Research Areas

The program puts priority on five substantive thematic clusters:

1. Social justice, poverty, and well-being;
2. Civil society, social change, cultural- and spiritual- based values;
3. Asset building and social capital formation in community-based
     health, education, shelter, and natural resource management;
4. Cultures of work, conflict, and peace; and
5. The impact of globalization on people's everyday lives.

Within these thematic clusters, specific substantive areas would include:

a. Religious change and transformation;
b. Families, childhood, youth, and aging;
c. Culture, political leadership, and state power;
d. Critical analysis of citizenship and civil society;
e. Forms of governance;
f. Corporations and private authority;
g. Social dynamics of agriculture and the environment;
h. Articulations of the global-local nexus; and
i. The coexistence of "modernity" and "tradition".

Proposal guidelines

Research proposals should not exceed 2,500 words.  The proposed  
project may be scheduled to start at anytime during 2008.  It must be  
completed within twelve months.  The maximum research award is  
P500,000.00, of which 10% will be allocated for research  
administrative costs.

The IPC Merit Research Awards are granted on a competitive basis.

The deadline for submission of research proposals this year is 15 APRIL 2008.
