Project Goals: 

This grant will support the Latin American Studies Association’s efforts to encourage research on Latin America by providing funding for travel and per diem costs for Latin American participants at the 2009 International Congress. The International Congress is the world’s premier forum for discussion on Latin America and the Caribbean. In order to ensure that a wide range of participants can attend this essential forum, the Latin American Studies Association works to provide fellowships on a sliding scale, based on need. The Tinker Foundation will provide funding for these fellowships in order to ensure the continued participation of individuals in the Congress.
