Support from the APSA Fund for Latino Scholarship assisted 2016 recipient, Liana Eustacia Reyes-Reardon, a graduate student at Rice University, travel to the 2016 APSA Annual Meeting. Her research is focused on conflict and cooperation, with particular emphasis on armed non-state actors (alliances, territorial control, governance, strategic behavior). She holds an MA in politics from New York University and an MA in global affairs and Juris Doctor from Florida International University. The APSA Fund for Latino Scholarship assisted Mrs. Reyes-Reardon in attending her first APSA annual meeting by providing the funds necessary to cover hotel, transportation, and/or registration costs.
The fund’s primary goal is to encourage and support the recruitment, retention, and promotion of Latina/o political scientists (especially students and tenure track junior faculty); our secondary goal is to support research on Latino politics in the United States (especially students and tenure track junior faculty). Grants will be made to individuals, institutions, and projects whose purposes most clearly match the goals of the fund, and whose proposals most persuasively demonstrate capacity for successful completion. The Fund for Latino Scholarship is an APSA Centennial Center Research Grant.
