The Argentine Studies Program of LLILAS invites all LLILAS faculty and University of Texas at Austin graduate students to submit a proposal for the Summer Field Research Award. The award can be used for airfare, lodging, local transportation, and/or per diem.

Proposals should have a length of 750–1,000 words and should justify how the activities support scholarly work that strengthens Argentine studies at UT Austin. In addition, proposals should specify how the funded activity will contribute to ongoing efforts on the topic (e.g., grant proposal, ongoing research, course development, etc.).

 Please include the following information in your application:

  1. The research proposal, including planned activities, feasibility, and expected outcomes (publication, grants, dissertation, dissertation proposal, etc.).
  2. If the proposal includes institutional collaborations with Argentina-based scholars and organizations, identify the institution, academic contact, and describe the intended collaboration.
  3. Total travel budget and the specific amount you are requesting from the Argentine Studies Program. Since in most cases we cannot fund 100% of the necessary travel budget, applicants must have supplementary funding from other sources.
  4. The IRB approval letter from the Office of Research Support & Compliance.
  5. Student proposals must include a letter of recommendation from a UT faculty member (submitted directly by the faculty member to p.diaz@austin.utexas.edu by March 1, 2020).

Deadline

Please submit proposals on or before March 5, 2020 (12:00pm CT). The selection of the proposals will take place shortly after that.
