Inter-American Foundation (Doctoral) Fellowship Program

The Inter-American Foundation (IAF) Fellowship Program: Doctoral Fellowships

Deadline for application: January 22, 2013

From the IAF announcement:

The Inter-American Foundation (IAF) was created in 1969 by the United States Congress to fund the self-help initiatives of the organized poor in Latin America and the Caribbean and the groups that directly support them. To complement its work, the IAF fellowships provide support for Ph.D. candidates from United States universities to conduct dissertation research in Latin America and the Caribbean on topics related to grassroots development.

IAF’s Fellowships are intended to increase awareness of grassroots development efforts while building a community of professionals and scholars knowledgeable in the subject. Fellows examine the efforts of the rural and urban poor to improve their lives, their methods of organization and production, and the policies and programs designed to alleviate their poverty. Funding is for between four and 13 months. The Inter-American Foundation expects to award up to 15 Doctoral Field Research Fellowships in 2013.
