Research and Travel Grants

 

 

The UC-CUBA Academic Initiative will award up to seven $1,000 research and travel grants to University of California Ph.D. students conducting Cuba-related research in any field. Preference will be given to proposals for initial research explorations and for completing advanced projects.

 

Interested applicants should submit a brief (2 page maximum) statement that outlines the project and explains how it fits into their planned course of study or dissertation completion, accompanied by a budget, a short CV, and a letter evaluating the project from the applicant's adviser. Those receiving the awards will be expected to participate in the 2017 UC-CUBA Graduate Student Conference.

 

Please submit your proposals to: rafernan@uci.edu

 

The deadline for submission of proposals: May 1, 2017. Awards will be announced by May 15, 2017.
