The James R. Scobie Award
Up to $1,500 is awarded each year for an exploratory research trip abroad to determine the feasibility of a Ph.D. dissertation topic dealing with some facet of Latin American history. One or more travel grants will be awarded each year.
The purpose of the award is to permit a short, exploratory research trip abroad (normally four to twelve weeks) to determine the feasibility of a Ph. D. dissertation topic dealing with some facet of Latin American history.
Up to five travel grants will be awarded each year. The funds are to be used only for international travel expenses and may not exceed $1,500. The grant must be used during the summer following the award, unless there is prior approval from the Award Committee and the Secretariat of the Conference on Latin American History. Under no circumstances is the award to be combined with a research grant for an extended stay. Scobie awards may be used in combination with other funds as long as they are not for international travel. The final report should indicate sources and amounts of all awards received.
UPDATE: Submission procedures will be available on the CLAH website. All applications are to be mailed to each of the committee members, must be postmarked no later than April 8, 2013, and must include:
1. a prospectus of proposed research, no longer than 1,500 words and a preliminary bibliography.
2. a tentative research schedule for the grant period.
3. a current curriculum vitae, with a notation of date of comprehensive exam.
4. two letters of recommendation, one of which should attest to the language competence (Spanish or Portuguese) of the applicant. Applicants without two letters postmarked by April 8 will not be considered.
The Awards Committee will send its final recommendation to the Secretariat by April 25, 2013. At the end of the grant period, each award recipient must submit a final report to the CLAH Secretariat outlining what was accomplished.
