The Institute of Latin American Studies (ILAS) at Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Columbia University is privileged to receive funding from The Leitner Family Foundation, The Tannenbaum Fund, and the US Department of Education to provide grants and fellowships to Columbia University undergraduate and graduate students. The most important source of academic year funding has been the Foreign Language and Areas Studies Fellowships (FLAS) which are provided to the Institute from the US Department of Education. Applicants for admission to graduate studies at Columbia with an emphasis on Latin America are encouraged to consider applying for these prestigious awards.
Each year ILAS selects distinguished academics to visit Columbia University to work on their own research and writing projects. Visiting Scholars are selected through a competitive process on the basis of professional qualifications, the quality of research plans, and the relevance of both to the Institute’s mission and objectives.
