LACS Graduate Student Conference Grants

Cornell Seal Paperweight

LACS offers conference grants up to $500 to fund travel to graduate students to present at conferences. Students should be presenting  or presenting a poster display at the conference and the conference should be focused on Latin America and/or the Caribbean. An award may only be granted once per funding cycle year (October-September) and only after graduate student applies for funding from their department and/or Graduate School.

Concurrent with submitting your LACS Graduate Student Conference Grant application to an elevated risk country (if conference is overseas, see the State Department's list) you are also required to submit a request to ITART to travel to that particular country.  In the event that you receive Einaudi travel grant funds, the award will not be released until you complete the ITART application process. If your proposal includes travel to an elevated risk country, you are strongly encouraged to have a back-up plan for your project in the event that your ITART application is denied, or if the country to which you are travelling should become an elevated risk country subsequent to receiving your travel grant.  

Application Process: Use the Apply button below. You may be asked later to provide an invitation letter to the conference.
