Our Small Grant Program for Research in Environmental Economics A small grants programs on topics relevant to Latin America and the Caribbean, by which local researches in Universities, Ministries, NGO's, etc; will learn the art of applied scientific research. Each researcher will work closely with a scientifically recognized tutor, in order to enrich the experience and increase the likelihood of a useful paper, which, in addition to being potentially publishable, will have policy implication for the region. Policy relevance will be sine qua non for accepting a proposal. The objective is to give at least 10 grants of US$15000 per year.

LACEEP’s research awards are granted through twice-yearly competitions. The assessment of proposals is done on a competitive basis. Interested researchers should first fill and submit the two-page preliminary proposal form that includes the following information: title of the project, project leader, contact information (name, address, telephone, fax, email) and general description of the problem, including objectives and relevance for the region, and a brief outline of the research methodology (please name your file: “last name – preliminary”). The form is attached and can also be downloaded at www.laceep.orgRead more...
When ready to submit a full proposal, applicants should obtain a copy of the “Guidelines for the Presentation of Research Proposals” from the LACEEP Secretariat. The guidelines indicate the structure of the proposal and the kinds of costs that may be included in project budgets. Proposals should follow exactly the proposed structure provided in the Guidelines and shouldby no means exceed 10 pages (excluding attachments). In a cover letter, applicants should indicate what other research projects they are currently carrying out, and their funding source. If a proposal similar to the one submitted to LACEEP has been or will be submitted to another funding source, this should be clearly indicated. It is anticipated that most projects will be done on a part-time basis; proponents should be able to demonstrate that they have adequate time to carry out the project and that there is no duplication of other activities. Full proposals should be written in English to facilitate their external revision.Read more...
