PATA grants are limited to a maximum of $2,000 for fieldwork completed in the summer months (June – September).
Students must be returning for at least one quarter after completing their project. These funds are not available for use for EAP or UC Davis Summer Abroad. Student applicants will identify a specific project they will be working on in the field, outline a budget and time frame for completing their project.
A strong proposal will identify the specific context within which the field work will be conducted, e.g., the country or countries involved, local community, and those most impacted by the work. In addition, successful proposals will outline project goals, anticipated outcomes (if any), and the NGO or agency contacts providing direct supervision of the applicant.
