CERCLL Research Grants
The Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language, and Literacy (CERCLL) is pleased to announce the CERCLL Research Grant Program. The purpose of this program is to promote scholarly work connected to the mission of CERCLL as a Title VI National Language Resource Center, namely to research and develop the teaching of culture, language and literacy, especially within less commonly taught languages (LCTLs).
Each recipient will record a webinar; they will be posted on this page as they become available.
These grants are supported by the University of Arizona’s Vice President for Research. The University of Arizona Research, Discovery & Innovation office provides researchers with the tools and resources that they need to be creative and to ask the important questions that lead to the important answers. They do so by enabling the research success of faculty through supporting university research centers, institutes, museums and core facilities; providing research development, compliance and safety services; and securing strategic external partnerships.
