Call for Applications for Field Research Grants


The LAII is pleased to announce its call for applications for Field Research Grants (FRGs) for UNM faculty and graduate students. For research conducted between April 1 and December 31, 2018 the deadline is Wednesday, March 21, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. A help session will be held at the LAII on Friday, February 2, 2018 from 12:00-1:00 p.m.  All first-time applicants are encouraged to attend.

The LAII provides support for graduate students in any UNM department to conduct fieldwork in Latin America, Spain, or Portugal. Field Research Grants (FRGs) are meant to assist students in obtaining their first or second field research experience in Latin America. The grants are generally for brief periods of research (typically two weeks to four months) and provide funding for airfare, in-country transportation and per diem.

Likewise, the LAII support faculty members who seek opportunities to begin fieldwork on new projects or to complete, supplement, or add a comparative dimension to field research previously conducted. Grants provide funding for airfare, in-country transportation, and some field expenses.

Additional restrictions apply. For more information, email commlaii@unm.edu for UNM faculty and graduate students. We also invite you to learn more about current award recipients.
