Gelia T. Castillo RICE Grant 2019
The Philippine Sociological Society invites applications for the RICE Grant for research.
The RICE Grant honors the legacy of Dr. Gelia Tagumpay-Castillo, National Scientist on Rural Sociology and a former President of the Philippine Sociological Society (PSS). Her family entrusted to the PSS a working fund to start a grant program that provides support to faculty, students, and/or practitioners in the field of Sociology and related social sciences who are engaged in any form of research on communities and engagements benefiting marginalized sectors in the Philippines.
The GRANT takes the symbolic metaphor of RICE as a fitting tribute to Dr. Castillo’s excellent academic life-work in the field of rice research and community studies in the country. To give context, RICE stands for Research In Community Engagements, to further enhance and encourage research of any form in the field of community and engagement studies. In order to provide more assistance in the future, the GC RICE GRANT continues to generate support to draw in more funds.
