Events and Speaker Funds

Funding for co-sponsoring events and speakers

The Center for Latin American Studies is a Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center. As part of our mission, LAS is dedicated to interdisciplinary collaboration that promotes LAS at the UA, in the Tucson community, nationally and internationally. For that reason LAS is initiating an open-ended application for affiliated departments and faculty members to request funds for event sponsorship or costs related to bringing a guest speaker to campus. All events must take place at UA, in Tucson or greater Southwest and must be Latin America centered. 

The application is open until all funds are allocated for the academic year. Awards will range from $200-$500 depending on scope of event.

Applications will be reviewed monthly on an ad hoc basis.
