CASAD Scholarship

Central American Security and Drug Policy (CASAD) Scholarship

The Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center (LACC) at Florida International University invites prospective students from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala to apply to the Central American Security and Drug Policy Scholarship (CASAD). The CASAD program will provide tuition and stipend to students seeking to complete the Master of Arts in Latin American and Caribbean Studies (MALACS).

The Master of Arts in Latin American and Caribbean Studies (MALACS) is a unique interdisciplinary program that allows students to design their program based on their own research and career interests. The Program is particularly valuable to those students whose research and professional interests cannot be accommodated within a single discipline.
