Research Cluster Grants

Research clusters are mechanisms enabling exchange, cross-fertilization and collaboration across disciplines. Research clusters are platforms to support and enhance existing faculty expertise and/or facilitate the engagement of faculty to examine the changing needs and growing cultural, political, environmental, and economic influence of Latinos/as and transborder communities in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands. Ultimately, the research clusters are expected to lead to a self-sustained research program by leveraging funding from external funding sources.
