Dear Colleagues,

The John Goodwin Tower Center for Political Studies at Southern Methodist University and the Latino Center for Leadership Development are excited to share a call for proposals for research grants for up to $10,000 for scholarly research projects that have policy implications for the Latina/o population. Faculty with doctoral degrees and students enrolled in doctoral programs at higher education institutions, as well as individuals with doctoral degrees with positions in national and local research-based and public policy institutions and/or organizations are welcome to apply. Applicants may be from any academic discipline. Please see this Tower Center website for more information and for the application link.

We have shared the call for proposals with you because you are affiliated with a professional organization or network that we are targeting for outreach. We encourage you to share this call widely with your networks (through email listservs and other social media), as we seek to fund a diverse set of proposals. The applications are due online 12/15 here. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Danielle Lemi ( or Dr. Jennifer Cook (

Thank you,

SMU Tower Center
