Regional Conference Grant Scheme

The Regional Conference Grant Scheme aims to support the study of modern languages and/or Latin American studies outside London, to promote inter-institutional collaborations, and bring together scholars from the wider region as participants or attendees.

The Institute of Latin American Studies is soon to be established as a research centre within IMLR, and the Institute is therefore pleased to make this funding scheme also available to scholars of Latin American studies.

Applicants can apply for a maximum of £2,000.

The call for applications will open in February 2021, for events to be held between 1 September 2021 and 30 June 2022. The deadline for applications is 11 April 2021.
