Undergraduate Funding Opportunities

**Due to COVID-19, some University-sponsored international travel is still prohibited or restricted. Please refer to the latest University guidance. PLAS is offering limited funding opportunities in SAFE for undergraduate students to conduct research projects on Latin American topics domestically in the U.S.**

As emerging scholars and professionals, Princeton undergraduates enjoy unique opportunities to become global citizens. For those interested in examining Latin America and the Caribbean, PLAS funding serves as a foundation and as a springboard.

Competitive grants support compelling student work and initiatives, whether it’s studying Latin America up close or bringing writers like Junot Diaz to Princeton. 

Interested students are encouraged to apply for support via the Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE).
