Research Application

Next application cycle will open Spring 2019

The Latino Center for Leadership Development (LCLD) in partnership with the TOWER CENTER at SMU is now accepting proposals for research grants. This research partnership is committed to understanding the growing challenges and opportunities the Latina/o population faces in the United States. While we are open to supporting research on any academic topic related to the Latina/o community, the partnership will prioritize research projects with public policy implications in areas such as immigration, criminal justice, education, poverty, health, economy, infrastructure, urban planning, civil rights, housing, LGBTQ rights, and inequality. Faculty and Ph.D. students in any discipline are welcome to apply. Proposals can funded for up to $10,000.
