Congratulations to Gabriella Subia Smith! The Latin American Studies Center (LASC) has awarded Gabriella a grant in Tinker Foundation Funds in support of her research. Donna Goldestein, Director of the Latin American Studies Center wrote, "The Board felt your project was very strong and we hope this early funding will give a jump start to your eventual doctoral dissertation research".

The goal of Tinker Foundation funds is to offer students an opportunity to acquire a comprehensive knowledge of language, terrain and culture; to familiarize them with information sources relevant to their studies; to conduct pilot studies and preliminary investigations that will inform their dissertation proposals; and to develop contacts with scholars and institutions in their fields of study.
