The Begoņa Aretxaga Travel Stipend, in the amount of $1,500, was named in honor of Begoņa Aretxaga, esteemed colleague and Advisory Board member of the Center, who passed away in 2002. The stipends were conceived to facilitate travel for scholars with an interest in Basque studies to come to Reno to conduct research. Preference is given to those whose research projects coincide with the materials available in the Basque Library at the University of Nevada, Reno.
To apply interested persons should send a research proposal of 1-2 pages to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 15th. Please include Aretxaga Travel Stipend in the subject line. Duration of stay will be determined by the recipient but it is assumed that it will be at least 3 weeks. Typically two stipends are awarded annually but this may vary on resources year to year. For further information please contact the Center.
