LACS invites undergraduates interested in conducting research in Latin America or the Caribbean to apply for our Summer Travel Grants for 2013. Two to three awards will be given, for amounts between $1000.00 -$1500.00. Students interested in working toward a senior thesis or other major research project are especially encouraged to apply.

The proposal should explain the objective of the proposed study, argue for its importance, detail where and how it will be conducted, explain what steps have been taken to make contacts in the country where the research will take place, and show the project's role in the applicant's plan of study and future goals.
A budget, detailing total expenses.
One letter of recommendation from a faculty advisor who agrees to supervise the project.
