Interested in conducting research in Latin America? The Kendall-Rives research grant makes available approximately $2,000 each year to one or more Wooster sophomores or juniors to support a research project on some aspect of United States-Latin American Relations. Funds are to be used during the current academic year, including the summer months. Research projects must be conducted in a Latin American country in preparation for, or as part of, a senior Independent Study project in any major.
Successful projects in the past have included an archaeological excavation in Honduras; research in Reynosa, Mexico, to gather information to create a testimonio; studying the Honduran educational system while working with a literacy NGO in Copan; participant observation in hair salons in the Dominican Republic; and interviews with street musicians in Cuzco, Peru.
The deadline for this grant is Friday, November 2. If you are interested in learning more about the Kendall-Rives Latin American Research Grant, please contact Professor Pamela Frese, Chair of the Kendall-Rives Committee (Office: Kauke 14; ext. 2256)
