ISLAC Mini-Research Grants


We regrettably inform that there will not be a mini-grant call this year due to funding shortage. We hope to be able to offer the much needed research funds in the future, and will inform the public if funds become available.

ISLAC’s competitive mini grants started in 1998. The grants are given for field work or primary research that is to be carried out in Latin America or the Caribbean. All grant recipients are required to present their findings in ISLAC’s Brownbag Series (which hosts an average of four talks per semester), or to participate in ISLAC sponsored research working group. This seed money has allowed a total of 15 affiliated faculty and students to conduct field research in the region during the spring of 2009 alone. In addition, starting in 2009 and with the aim of promoting a more interdisciplinary approach to the study of Latin American and the Caribbean, these mini grants will facilitate the creation of working groups, each of which will be presenting a research symposium or a guest speaker every year.
