CLACS is excited to announce the recipients of this year’s Summer Research Grant competition.
Pending funding, The NYU Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies offers an annual competition for summer research grants. Graduate students in all NYU schools and programs may apply for assistance with summer research in Latin America and the Caribbean for periods ranging from two to twelve weeks. M.A. candidates may research master’s theses or Major Projects; Ph.D. students may carry out preliminary research for dissertations.
The following students come from a range of departments across NYU, and we are pleased to be able to support their research projects in the countries listed. You can find more information on the CLACS website. Please stay tuned to the CLACS blog, as summer research grant winners will be contributing stories from the field. Congratulations!
