Funding: Ph.D. Fellowships


LAII partner departments at UNM may nominate Ph.D. students whose research focuses on Latin America or Iberia. The LAII awards ten fellowships annually. The fellowship provides a stipend and a waiver of tuition and fees. Students who are awarded LAII Ph.D. Fellowships may receive other awards that directly support the costs of research activities, but they may not receive both the LAII Ph.D. Fellowship and any other fellowship that provides a basic living stipend.

Application Information

**Applications are closed for the current cycle, and awards administered for the 2017-2018 Academic Year. Please check in September 2017 for information on applying for the 2018-2019 Academic Year cycle.**

In order to be considered for the LAII Ph.D. Fellowship, students must be nominated or re-nominated by the chairperson of their department. Students who seek nomination or renomination are encouraged to contact either the chairperson or graduate advisor of the nominating department. LAII Ph.D. application forms are distributed by the nominating department and are not available directly from the LAII. Students who are nominated by their department should submit their application materials directly to their department in electronic PDF format and according to its internal procedures.
