The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies is pleased to announce the 2020-21 Faculty Research and Teaching Grant competition
Grant applications are welcome to support non-travel expenses associated with research and teaching on Latin America and the Carribean. Because of restrictions due to the pandemic, expenses associated with field research (travel, lodging, etc.) or *any* travel cannot be funded. Eligible expenses include: purchase of research materials; costs associated with integration of Latin American and Caribbean content into new or existing courses; costs associated with translation of scholarly work, with the digitization of scholarly materials, or with publication (e.g.: copyright permissions); the payment of research assistants, including NYU graduate students and including research assistants at international field sites who may assist remotely with research; and other expenses as proposed by the researcher.
Faculty research grants are funded in part by the US Department of Education (Title VI-NRC). Please note special terms associated with Federal Grants. Title VI funding may be used for research on Latin America and the Caribbean. Unfortunately, projects focusing solely on US-based ethnic communities and Puerto Rico do not qualify. If you are unsure whether your project qualifies, please contact the Director at the address below.
Approximately 10 awards between $1000–$3000 will be made. Monies should be expended before September 1, 2021.
Application review will begin on November 30, 2020.
