Brown University and the Universidad Nacional de General San Martín (UNSAM) in Buenos Aires, Argentina have launched a program of faculty and graduate student exchange. Each institution has pledged to establish up to two competitive scholarships per academic year for social scientists to make research visits to the other. Grants are open to faculty, post-docs, and graduate students.
The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) at Brown University is proud to announce that it has been awarded a multi-year Field Research Grant by the Tinker Foundation. The grant provides $10,000 annually over three years to support pre-dissertation fieldwork in Latin America and the Caribbean by Brown doctoral students from all disciplines. The funds from the Tinker Foundation will be matched each year by the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs and the Graduate School, bringing the total amount available to $20,000 per year.
The CLACS Undergraduate Fellowship Program allows undergraduate students with an interest in Latin America and the Caribbean, and academic excellence, to explore in-depth what it means to work in/on the region. This fellowship program is open to students from all concentrations.
This year's group of CLACS Fellows are particularly inspiring and diverse! They have spent significant time in twelve countries of the region, represent sixteen concentrations, and come from all class years at Brown.
