Sarmiento Research Award for Latin American Studies

The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) is accepting applications from Brown University undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty for Sarmiento Research Awards. Successful applicants receive up to $5,000 to support humanities and social science research in and on Spanish-speaking South America.

The funds may be used between July 2021-June 2022 to cover travel and research expenses. The program is funded by the Sarmiento Flexible Fund for Latin American Studies, which was established through the generous support of Alfredo C. Cassiet, M.D. and Maria-Elena Cassiet, and can only accept candidates who are “natives or residents of Spanish-speaking countries south of Panama, not including the Caribbean.”
