Undergraduate Funding Opportunities

The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) offers a variety of funding opportunities for undergraduate students entering or currently enrolled in one of its undergraduate programs.

During her distinguished career at CLAS, Shirley Kregar, always a fervent advocate for international study, mentored hundreds of students in their quest to gain cross-cultural experience.

The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) is very pleased to announce the opening of the competition for the Violeta F. Rodríguez Scholarships for international study abroad. 

The Undergraduate Teaching Award offers undergraduates the opportunity to enrich their educational experience, enhance their resumé, and receive a cash award of $1,000. 

The Panoramas Interns will assist the Panoramas Coordinator and the Assistant Director for Academic Affairs, helping in the administration of CLAS social media and other web and social media related activities. Interns will also be asked to write articles for Panoramas and work on special projects. Work hours will vary depending on the university schedule (workload will be about 10 hours a week). Note that interns may be asked to work on an occasional Saturday.

On December 31, 2013, Kathleen Musante ended her term as longest-serving Director of CLAS. CLAS is proud to make available awards named in honor of her parents, Edward J. and Jacqueline M. Musante. One award of $1,000 will be offered this year to provide financial support for travel and other educational expenses to undergraduate students who are conducting research in Latin America.

Undergraduates currently enrolled in the CLAS certificate are welcome to apply. The recipient of the fellowship will be required to work approximately fifteen hours per week during the fall and spring terms.
