Graduate Student Residents
The Latin American Studies Center (LASC) at the University of Maryland, College Park invites you to apply for a semester-long residency in our H.J. Patterson offices, beginning January 7, 2019. The unpaid residency will be awarded to two students, and includes access to a private desk in an office shared with one other resident, as well as access to our shared kitchen, lounge, meeting room, and work room. The Graduate Residents' research will be featured in a talk or workshop that showcases the work completed during their residency.
All currently enrolled UMD graduate students who are engaged in work focused on Latin America or the Caribbean are qualified to apply. We seek applicants who will contribute vitally to the LASC community. In your 1-page letter of application, please address the following questions:
1. What project do you plan to work on during the residency? How will the use of the LASC offices and proximity to LASC staff benefit your work?
2. How do you envision contributing to the LASC community? If you have been engaged with LASC in the past, describe your involvement. How do you plan to promote LASC's mission?
Send letters of application to LASC Director Dr. Merle Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 6, 2019.
