STRI/SI Fellows' Projects

Conduct your own research in the context of a 100-year relationship between the Smithsonian and Panama resulting in more than 10,000 scholarly publications. You will benefit from constant exchange of ideas leading to transformational research and seeding new questions.

Register a new project

Individuals who want to use STRI resources to conduct their own research need to submit a Research Proposal

A Research Proposal is a technical document that presents a research question, justifies the need for the study and includes a research plan. The proposal should be brief, but precise and well documented. Please make sure your proposal is complete before submitting.

Arrange a Visit to an existing project

Your project is already registered and you want to arrange a Visit to start/continue working on your project.

If research permits are required by the government of Panama please submit visit requests three months prior to arriving at STRI.

If no permits are required by the government of Panama, please submit your visit request at least one month before arriving at STRI to ensure the availability of the tools and resources you need.
