Description: The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) is pleased to announce a travel grant competition for University of Chicago graduate students to conduct preliminary (pre-dissertation) field research in Latin America or Iberia. The CLAS Field Research Grant* provides students with the opportunity to develop an independent research project, collect data, explore research sites and archives, and to establish professional and institutional contacts.
Please see http://clas.uchicago.edu/grants/tinker.shtml for details & application materials.
*Please note: in other years this grant is called the "Tinker Field Research Grant". Due to Tinker Foundation program requirements, we are in a mandatory two-year hiatus period when the funding support from this grant does not come from the Tinker Foundation. During this period, it is called the CLAS Field Research Grant, but aside from the primary source of funding, there are no other changes to the program.
