Tuesday 31 March 2015

The Institute Latin American Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London, is pleased to announce its funding schemes for the academic year 2015-16.

ILAS Visiting Stipendiary Fellowship scheme 2015-16

The purpose of this scheme is to provide support to scholars with relevant subject expertise to pursue innovative and interdisciplinary research on Latin America and the Caribbean in an environment tailored to such work, free from the competitive institutional constraints of other UK university institutions. The scheme enables the Fellows to engage with a broad range of UK and international scholars in their field through the formation of networks and through collaboration in research projects, publications and dissemination events such as workshops and conferences.

ILAS conference grant scheme 2015-16

ILAS’ conference grant scheme was offered for the first time in the academic year 2012-13 and has supported a number of conferences which have presented innovative research on Latin America and the Caribbean. Applications are now sought for scholars at any level (early-career, mid-career or senior scholars) to convene academic conferences pertaining to Latin America and the Caribbean in the humanities and cognate social sciences. For the academic year 2015-16 ILAS will fund up to six conferences. For more information click here.

Regional seminar series grant scheme 2015-16

This scheme provides funding for a series of regional seminars held over two or three terms at two or more UK higher education institutions. The scheme promotes the study of Latin America and the Caribbean and fosters inter-institutional collaboration, particularly where institutional support structures are limited or where scholars are dispersed across discipline-based departments.
