SLAS Postdoctoral Award Scheme
SLAS makes available a total of 2 grants worth up to £1,000 each (£2,000 total) per year to to encourage and assist postdoctoral members of the Society in overseas fieldwork in Latin American Studies. This scheme is open to those who have been awarded their doctorate within five years of applying. Funds are intended to cover overseas travel and research on or in Latin America, whether in archives and libraries or on other fieldwork. Applicants must be members of SLAS and based at a UK institution of higher education, but may be of any nationality.
The criteria for the award are:
- Quality of project design
- Potential significance of the research
- Support from referees
- Financial need; priority will be given to those with limited access to institutional funds.
To apply, please complete the application form available here [Word]. The single annual deadline is 28 February each year.
Please submit your application BY EMAIL ONLY to the SLAS Secretary, Dr Sarah Bowskill, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be judged by a panel composed of members of the SLAS Committee. Successful candidates are expected to produce a short report of their research trip, which may be published on the SLAS website.
Applications arriving after the deadline will not be considered under any circumstances.
