As part of an effort to promote understanding and awareness of Latin America and Iberia across disciplines at The University of New Mexico, the Latin American and Iberian Institute offers event funding support throughout the year.
This support bolsters the campus community’s ability to hold lectures, presentations, exhibits, performances, and other events related to Latin America and Iberia.
The LAII may provide up to $500.00 after evaluating each proposal on the basis of the following criteria:
- Focus on Latin American, Iberian or US Latino/Hispano content
- Number likely to attend and from what disciplines/communities
- Linkages across campus
- Number of co-sponsors
- Quality of speaker(s)
- Benefit to off-campus community
In addition to financial assistance, the LAII can also provide modest in-kind assistance for selected relevant events. In return for being acknowledged as a co-sponsor for an activity, the LAII may be able to assist with promotional materials, publicity, and audio archiving of the event. The degree of in-kind support is contingent on advance notice and staff availability.
