Center Faculty Associate Research Grants

CLLAS will competitively award up to $2000 each fiscal year to support Faculty Associates conducting research or presenting at a conference on a topic in the fields of Latinx or Latin American Studies.  Funds must be used to cover research or conference-related expenses, such as travel, lodging, registration, and per diem.  Original receipts must be presented for reimbursement, and only those expenses incurred during the award period will be honored.

Application materials will be reviewed by the CLLAS Advisory Council.  A completed application will include a 1000-word proposal that explains the project as well as an itemized budget, a travel itinerary, and a current curriculum vita.  If you are applying for support for conference travel, please indicate if your proposal has already been accepted.  If you are applying for support for research travel, please indicate if your proposed project has already been invited or accepted for publication or where you are seeking to publish the finished work.

The grant recipient is expected to share the results of their research or their conference paper with CLLAS by presenting at a Brown Bag talk open to faculty and students within a year of their award.
