Travel Research Grants

MA students have the option to seek credit-based and non-credit based research in Latin America through the program's Travel Research Grants.  In the past, students have traveled to virtually every country in Latin America, carrying out unique projects that do well to represent the diversity of interests at Georgetown.  

MA candidates completing a Travel Grant are required to present their results at a CLAS panel in the autumn. 

In 2015 alone, 18 students received Travel Research Grants to support research in fields as disparate as freedom of expression, women's empowerment, China/Brazil Trade, and historical memory.  The map below provides more detail on recent grant topics and their research locations:
