The College of Liberal Arts presents up to twenty $2,000 research awards for undergraduate and graduate students conducting research on US-Mexico/Borderlands issues. At least four of these awards will be reserved for students involved in research projects working closely with local communities or NGOs.
All students (undergraduate and graduate) are eligible to apply if they are currently enrolled in the University of Texas at Austin and are working towards a degree.
The application must be completed and include a research description, a letter of recommendation from a faculty member at UT Austin, and a curriculum vita (graduate students only).
The application deadline for 2009-2010 has already passed. The application period for 2010-11 awards has not been established.
