Support from the APSA Fund for Latino Scholarship assisted 2016 recipient, Angela Gutierrez, a political science graduate student in the fields of race, ethnicity, politics, and American politics at UCLA, travel to the 2016 APSA Annual Meeting. Her work is primarily focused on the Latino electorate in the United States and Latino identity and political behavior. She presented her work on Latino voters as issue publics and the importance of immigration policy on partisanship.
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.
