Irish Latin American Research Fund (ILARF) Call for Grant proposals - deadline extension
The Society for Irish Latin American Studies is pleased to announce the launch of a new edition of its grants programme, the Irish Latin American Research Fund. The objective of the Irish Latin American Research Fund is to support innovative and significant research in the different aspects of relations between Ireland and Latin America.
Grants up to 1,000 Euros will be awarded to exceptionally promising students, faculty members or independent scholars to help support their research and writing leading to the publication or other types of communication of their projects. Awards will be selected on the basis of a well-developed research plan that promises to make a significant contribution to a particular area of study about the Irish and Latin America.
Three prestigious scholars will shortly be announced who will be responsible for assessing the research proposals and awarding grants to the best projects. The Irish Latin American Research Fund is open to faculty, advanced university students, and independent scholars throughout the world. Applicants from previous academic years who were not awarded a grant may apply again and submit the same project. Successful applicants must wait until two rounds of grants have passed before reapplying.
The programme receives no institutional funding and its only financial source is represented by membership fees and donations. These grants are possible thanks to the generosity of SILAS members and friends.
The deadline for applications has been extended to 9 July 2010 and awards will be announced on 27 August 2010.
