Financial Aid

The Center for Latin American Studies provides several graduate fellowships as well as limited course assistantships with the Tinker Visiting Professors each quarter.

Students in graduate programs who plan to enroll in Portuguese,  Quechua, or Nahuatl language and Latin American Studies courses may be eligible for Academic Year and Summer Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships. Recipients of FLAS fellowships must be US citizens or Permanent Residents. Applicants to the M.A. program have priority in the annual FLAS competition; in recent years CLAS has also awarded FLAS fellowships to graduate students enrolled in the  professional schools of Education, Engineering, and Law.

Please visit the Funding for Graduate Students section for further information. You may also contact CLAS Associate Director, Elizabeth Sáenz-Ackermann, with further questions.
