Tinker Field Research Grant

Tinker Field Research Grants are awarded as travel grants for graduate students with little or no previous field experience to enable them to conduct pre-dissertation research in specific regions of Latin America. Students will be able to acquire a comprehensive knowledge of language, terrain, and culture; to familiarize themselves with information sources relevant to their studies; to conduct pilot studies and preliminary investigations; and to develop contacts with scholars and institutions in their fields.

The Tinker Field Research Grants are not to be used for advanced dissertation research, but rather to provide graduate students with their first experience in developing an independent research project and with conducting hands-on field research in Latin America.

Eligibility: Graduate student in any department with priority given to doctoral students.

Deadline: January 30, 2015
