Scholarship and travel opportunity!

The Central American Section of the Latin American Studies Association (LASA) sets aside money every year to fund two travel grants for scholars in Central America who would like to attend the annual conference. LASA especially encourages students to apply for these awards. To apply, please submit a C.V. and a cover letter describing your research, the paper you plan to present at the conference and financial need. The deadline to receive your application is February 13, 2015. The section officers will review the applications, and we will notify the winners in early March. If you receive a grant, you must then become a member of the Section (the cost is $10).

Please submit the required application materials to the co-chairs, Claudia Rueda ( and Sonja Wolf (  Please note, If you received a travel grant from LASA to attend this year’s conference, you are not eligible to apply for a section grant.
