This year the Program on Latin America and the Caribbean (PLACA) will grant awards to graduate students of up to $1,500 to support field research in Latin America and the Caribbean during the summer of 2014.
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 M.A. or Ph.D. program at Syracuse University 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.
