Since its inception in 1983, IUPLR has supported research on issues of importance to Latino communities and the broader US society. IUPLR assists in the formation of working groups through a yearly competitive process which allocates seed money in the amount of $5,000 to two or three new or already existing working groups every year.
Working groups must be sponsored by one of the IUPLR member centers and must include members affiliated with at least two IUPLR member institutions and others in or external to the consortium. It is expected that working groups be comprise a mix of senior and junior scholars and be gender-balanced.
The ability of the IUPLR to sponsor working groups is dependent on the availability of funds and, therefore, the number of working groups operating at any one time may be limited.
Proposals are selected on the merit of research projects that address critical issues in Latino Studies.
