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.

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. 

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.

The First Prize photograph will be published on the cover of this year's CLASicos and the owner will be awarded a $200 scholarship. The deadline is 4:00 pm EST on Friday, January 29, 2021.

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.
