Join the UNM LAII for our first annual Field Research Grant (FRG) Colloquium and Reception. Three FRG recipients (Katie Sartor, Lean Sweeney, and Edmond Seabright) will share their respective research experiences and findings in a series of presentations. Afterwards, all current and past FRG recipients and members of the LAII community are invited to come and mingle to learn more about the exciting research initiatives of UNM's Latin Americanist graduate students. For reference, see the event flyer.
In Spring 2015, the LAII awarded the following students with FRGs to support their work in the field. The breadth of their research initiatives illustrates the broad interest and commitment to Latin America found among graduate students at UNM.
Funded in part by the Tinker Foundation, LAII Field Research Grants provide support for graduate students in any UNM department to conduct field work in Latin America. FRGs are meant to assist students in obtaining their first or second field research experience in Latin America. The grants are generally for fairly brief periods of research (typically two weeks to four months) and provide funding for airfare, in-country transportation and some expenses in the field. Awards are given annually each spring. For more information, see the complete description of Field Research Grant funding.
To learn about previous field research grant recipients, please see the LAII's FRG profiles and photography albums. Current awardees will be added shortly.
