PLAS funding encourages research and programming that adds a new dimension to the study of Latin America. With a focus on cultivating insight, we provide competitive funding for everything from poetry readings to student research experiences. Recognizing the groundbreaking work taking place at Princeton, we also assist faculty in their efforts to promote a deeper understanding of Latin America.
The Program in Latin American Studies (PLAS) would first like to express our care and sympathies to all during these challenging times. We understand this is a stressful and uncertain time as many are confronting changes to their educational plans and a range of travel restrictions. Even though we are unable to award travel funding for the summer at this time and we do not know when international travel restrictions will be lifted, we want you to know that PLAS remains committed to doing everything we can to enable students to progress in their studies. As such, later this summer PLAS will revisit the possibility of opening up additional funding opportunities for research travel during fall and winter breaks next academic year.
