2017-18 Call for Nominations

The Latin American Research Centre invites nominations for graduate students in residence for the 2017-18 academic year. Graduate Students in Residence are an important part of the LARC community. We encourage students to engage in a range of activities that include contributing to LARC publication or presenting their work in LARC-sponsored lectures or in the graduate student symposium. The Centre will provide space, a computer, and printer access. There is no monetary compensation.


University faculty are invited to nominate second-year MA students and post-comprehensive exam PhD students working on Latin American topics.  Please send nominations to by Thursday June 1, 2017.


Nominations should include the following information:

• The nominator’s letter

• A one-page statement of the student’s research describing how it will further LARC’s mission.

• A letter of support from the student’s supervisor (if he or she is not the nominator).

• The student’s CV (with full contact information).


Incomplete nominations will not be considered. If you have any questions please contact
