CLAIS recently received the Field Research Grant from the Tinker Foundation to fund pre-dissertation research travel for graduate students. The Tinker Field Research Grants are awarded for use for travel and field-related expenses for brief periods of pre-dissertation field research in Latin America. Grants are awarded to graduate students with little or no previous experience in Latin America and are not to be used for dissertation research. Applications for projects that focus on economic policy, governance, environmental policy, and public policy are strongly encouraged. We are very pleased to have these grants available to our growing (now over 70 students!) graduate affiliates network. Click here for more information.
