at the Center for Basque Studies


Scholars who would like to come to Reno to conduct research may be eligible for grants that will help offset the costs of their trip. Options include:

The Begoña Aretxaga Memorial Travel Stipends offered by the Center for Basque Studies.

USAC/UPV Grants: Travel and lodging stipends for faculty of the University of the Basque Country (EHU/UPV), offered by the University Studies Abroad Consortium and the UPV.

UNR Study Grants: Travel and living costs plus partial tuition waivers for graduate students of the University of the Basque Country (EHU/UPV) to attend the University of Nevada, Reno.

The Frances A. Echeverria Graduate Student Award offers funding in the form of an annual award of approximately $1,000 for Center for Basque Studies Ph.D. students to assist in completing their graduate dissertation (for expenses such as travel, books, etc.). The award was funded in 2006 by the Echeverria family in honor of their mother, Frances A. Echeverria, a Reno native. Upon graduation from the University of Nevada, Reno, Frances received the Herz medal for highest scholarship.

Please check out the options from the links above to see if you qualify for a grant and for information on applying.

The Center also awards three scholarships each year, with varying requirements, for students attending the University of Nevada, Reno.
