  • Field Research Grants

    Melanie Colón

    Field Research Grants are awarded to university Centers or Institutes of Latin American Studies to provide travel grants to graduate students with little or no previous field experience to conduct pre-dissertation research in specific regions of Latin America.


    The research conducted should reflect broadly the Tinker Foundation's areas of interest, however, awards are open to students across all academic disciplines.


    Award Levels

    Two levels of support in the Field Research Grants competition are available – $10,000 and $15,000 per annum. Centers/Institutes that are less developed and/or relatively new are encouraged to apply for the $10,000 level award.


    Matching Requirement

    Successful Centers/Institutes must match the award with a minimum of the amount awarded with funds from the university or other sources. The matching monies must be unencumbered, real monies. Overhead and faculty time are not deemed eligible to meet the matching funds requirement. The total sum of the Tinker Foundation award plus the matching, unrestricted funds from the university or other sources must be allocated to individual recipients to cover the cost of international and in-country travel and limited field-related expenses. No administrative costs may be deducted.



    Applications must be received in the Tinker Foundation offices by October 1.
