PLACA Summer Research Grants – Call for Proposals
Attention Graduate and Doctoral Students:
This year the Program on Latin America and the Caribbean (PLACA) will grant awards to graduate students of up to $2,000 (with committee discretion to award partial funding in some cases) to support field research in Latin America and the Caribbean during the summer of 2012.
The purpose of the award is to provide students the opportunity to gather preliminary data, make contacts, map topics, and increase competitiveness of future proposals for funding. Any student enrolled in a MA or PhD program at Syracuse University or SUNY-ESF may apply.
The awards are competitive and proposals are judged on the basis of i) quality of the proposed research, ii) organization and thoughtfulness of the proposal, and iii) appropriateness and feasibility of the research plan in relation to the student’s background and qualifications.
DEADLINE: Friday, March 9, 2012
Guidelines are also available at The Moynihan Institute of Global
Affairs, 346 Eggers Hall.
