Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies

The Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies distributes small grants to UO faculty, students and community groups in order to encourage existing projects and collaborations, and to facilitate new ones. CLLAS funds summer research projects for graduate students. Grants for faculty and community groups are specifically intended to support collaborative research, teaching, and community outreach projects that are interdisciplinary, link more than one UO unit together, and involve the wider Eugene-Springfield or Oregon community. CLLAS particularly wants to encourage student/faculty/community collaborations and is especially interested in projects that have the potential to put Latino and Latin American Studies in conversation.

See the list of current calls for proposals as well as past grantees here.
