The German-American Academic Council Foundation manages the Transatlantic Research Cooperation Program (TransCoop), which supports cooperative research projects between German, US and Canadian scholars in the humanities, social sciences, law and economics with up to $60,000. The US/Canadian research partners must secure matching funds in the amount applied for from the Foundation. The maximum duration of sponsorship for each project is three years. Applicants must at least have a Ph.D. Awards are made twice a year, and the next application deadline is December 15, 1996. Application forms are available in the Office of International Programs, 133 Bennett Hall/6275.
The GAAC operates in two main areas of activity and supports numerous projects in these areas: studies of mutual interest to scientists, scholars, and policy-makers in both nations that address social, economic, scientific, technological or other issues programs to develop and sustain permanent networks of cooperative activities among young scientists and scholars in the two countries.
