At the LAII we're committed to supporting students whose scholarship focuses on Latin America. This means not only that we support the students in the Latin American Studies (LAS) program, but also that we fund students focusing on the region in other departments across campus.
Each year Latin American Studies students received substantive financial aid through resources like graduate assistantships (GA), teaching assistantships (TA), departmental scholarships, and in-state tuition waivers. We also provided funding for research through our Field Research Grants (FRGs).
We invite you to learn more about our funding opportunities below.
Please note that the FLAS Academic Year and Summer Fellowships, and the UISFL Field Research Award are open to students in any discipline (including LAS students); all other funding is reserved for students in the LAS program.
