(Nov. 12, 2013) -- The UTSA Mexico Center announces the 2013-2014 competition for the UTSA Mexico Center Educational Research Fellowship. The fellowship provides financial assistance for student and faculty research projects on Mexico-related topics that need time in Mexico to do field work or consultation at a university or research center.
The student grants, funded by the Carlos and Malu Alvarez International Study Fund are worth $2,500. They pay for student travel to Mexico, food, lodging, local travel, and supplies/materials needed to complete the project such as data sets for quantitative analysis or transcribers/recorders for fieldwork.
To encourage teams of faculty and student researchers, the Mexico Center will supplement the student grant with up to $1,000 for faculty members working with students on the projects (one faculty member per project). The funds from the center for the faculty member supervising the project will pay for faculty travel to Mexico, food, lodging and supplies/materials needed to complete the project.
The grant cannot support faculty research alone. Funding is contingent upon travel approval by the UTSA International Oversight Committee (IOC). Travel to borders states in Mexico is highly restricted.
The UTSA Mexico Center requests copies of the finished work by the spring semester of 2015, a financial report of expenses and a presentation of the research project at a UTSA Mexico Center brown-bag lecture.
Proposals are due by Monday, Dec. 2, 2013. Send the completed application form in Word or PDF format as an attachment via email) to Olivia.Lopez@utsa.edu. An e-mail confirmation will be returned upon receipt of the proposal. Proposals will be reviewed by the UTSA Mexico Center Advisory Board. Awards will be announced in January 2014.
