Given the current measures that limit travel and fieldwork across the globe, we have adjusted the due dates for this grant. Grantees will be able to make use of their funds until the summer of 2021, if not earlier and will present a report of their research early in the fall of 2021 at the latest. Any needed readjustment of this timeline will be communicated to the grantees and disseminated to our CLACLS community.

En solidaridad,
Laura & CLACLS Staff
