Tinker Fellows Return From Fieldwork in Latin America
2014 Tinker Fellow Ryan Crumley (Geography) doing research in Peru
This spring, CLAS awarded Tinker Field Research Grants to eight graduate students from 5 different departments and 3 colleges. This funding is awarded to graduate students to support pre-dissertation research travel to and within Latin America. Tinker Fellows conducted research in six countries of Latin America, including Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Mexico, and Peru. 

These students will be featured in the CLAS Weekly Newsletter throughout autumn semester, and CLAS affiliates will be invited to attend "Tinker Talk" round table events that feature the research progress of our Tinker Fellows. Keep an eye out for details on Tinker Talks in future newsletters!
