CLAS offers research-travel awards for faculty members at institutions in Illinois who are engaged in Latin American/Caribbean research projects or conference presentations. As part of our postsecondary outreach program, external faculty members are eligible to compete for modest travel funds.
Faculty members who wish to pursue Latin American/Caribbean research projects, engage in Latin America-focused conference presentations, or attend Latin Americanist conferences are eligible to compete for modest (up to $500) travel funds each academic year. Funded with federal Title VI funds from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and University of Chicago, all designated as US Department of Education (US/ED) National Resource Centers, these awards are for Latin Americanist and Caribbeanist faculty with an appointment at a two- or four-year, public or private institution in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota or Iowa.
