The Tinker Foundation Field Research Grants Program is designed to provide budding scholars with funds for travel to and within Latin America to conduct pre-doctoral research and develop contacts with scholars and institutions in their fields of study. Universities may receive funding at the $10K or $15K level-LACC was awarded the more prestigious $15K grant with the possibility of 2 additional 1-year renewals. LACC's 1:1 match brings total support for Tinker grant awardees to $90K over 3 years.
LACC is honored to have been selected by the Latin American Public Opinion Project (LAPOP) to host the public release of results from the Western hemisphere's leading public opinion survey, AmericasBarometer. The survey provides critical insight related to public policy, scholarship and business, and LAPOP's partnership with LACC is yet another example of the Center's strategic importance related to hemisphere.
