Institute Announces First Collaborative Research and Student Fellow Awards
The Georgetown Americas Institute has awarded its first round of collaborative research grants for faculty and student fellowships.
Collaborative research grants bring Georgetown faculty and outside experts together around topics related to the institute’s themes: governance and the rule of law, economic growth and innovation, social and cultural inclusion, and the environment and sustainability. The institute also supports a student fellows program for talented undergraduate and graduate students to work with faculty members on research projects.
Proposals are solicited through an open competition and evaluated by a faculty committee. The next call for proposals will be announced in early 2022.
