Supported by a gift from Chilean benefactors, the Luksic family, to Notre Dame, the goal of this grant is to encourage the Notre Dame community to find new ways to collaborate with colleagues from the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (PUC) on research, exchanges, and conferences, and in particular to increase the flow of Notre Dame faculty and staff going to Santiago. Separately, the Luksic family has made a gift directly to PUC for their faculty and staff to come to Notre Dame. This grant builds on the previous four years of support from the Luksic family to support exchanges between Notre Dame and PUC.
Full-time regular members of the Notre Dame faculty, library faculty and special professional faculty are eligible to apply. Staff members leading programs relevant to the goals of the collaboration between these two institutions may also submit a proposal.
