CLAS Travel Grants

CLAS offers travel grants to assist its students with their summer research. Award amounts vary based on the type of project, its location, and the quality of the proposal. Applications for these grants are evaluated by a select committee of administrators and faculty.  Grants are also available to graduate students to subsidize the cost of transportation to conferences where they have been invited to present papers. Applications for conference travel grants must be received at least one month in advance of the travel date.

External Grants and Need-Based Aid

In addition to its scholarship options, CLAS strongly encourages students to apply for fellowships, scholarships, and grants from outside sources. To start, students should visit the graduate student resource page hosted by Georgetown University’s Office of Student Financial Services, which can be accessed here.

Students from Latin America may be eligible to receive subsidized loans from the Leo S. Rowe Pan-American Fund, which is administered by the Organization of American States (OAS). The Rowe Fund provides for no-interest and low-interest loans to citizens of OAS member countries pursuing higher education in the United States.
