Field Research Grants support travel to Latin America for graduate students to conduct preliminary work toward their research projects. Funding for most projects is generously provided by the Tinker Foundation through the Field Research Collaborative Program.


Tinker Field Research Grants are available to graduate students for travel and field-related expenses for brief periods of pre-dissertation field research in Latin America, defined here as the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries of the region. In 2021, remote research is allowed. Awards are open to students across all academic disciplines and graduate degree programs.
