The Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies offers a twelve-month dissertation fellowship for graduate students at Brown University who are in the writing stage of their dissertation. The fellowships are open to students in any department whose dissertation is directly relevant to Latin America and/or the Caribbean. The awards consist of a full year’s stipend and payment of enrollment and health fees. Applications will be evaluated by a committee comprised of core faculty of the Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies. Awardees will be expected to make a presentation about their research in the Center’s lecture series and to participate in the Center’s activities.
