Instructions for Field Research Funding


The Tinker Foundation invites U.S. universities with Centers for Latin American Studies (or the equivalent) to submit applications for the Tinker Field Research Collaborative. With forty years of experience in funding field research in Latin America, Tinker is launching the Collaborative to connect Centers committed to working together to enhance the impact of the student field research experience. Successful applicants to the Collaborative will receive field research grant funding for their Centers for a five-year period and have access to opportunities for network-building and knowledge exchange. The Collaborative replaces Tinker’s prior annual selection process for field research grants, i.e., the Tinker Field Research Grants program.
