Conference Travel Grants

The opportunity to interact with both peers and established scholars beyond the boundaries of Princeton is invaluable. Not only does it foster a broader community of thinkers focused on Latin America and the Caribbean, the feedback gleaned in real time can change the shape of one’s research. As such, PLAS offers funding to offset costs related to the attendance of invited conferences for the presentation of one’s work.
