CLACS invites applications for Mendel Summer Research Grants from graduate students with research interests in Latin America or the Caribbean. Priority for Mendel funds will be given to graduate students in the humanities. Applications are due Wednesday, April 22, 2009.
The intent of the grant is to allow students to develop greater familiarity with language and culture, to gather initial research data, and to develop contacts with scholars and institutions in their field of study. Awards will range from $500 to $800, depending on the total amount of expected travel expenses. Awards will not cover per diem, incidental, or other expenses not related to travel.
Important note to applicants for the Tinker Field Research Grant: If you feel that your Tinker proposal accords with the humanities focus of the Mendel program, you may request that we forward all or part of your Tinker file to the Mendel selection committee. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with specific instructions regarding the components that you would like forwarded.
