Call for Applications | Research/Creative Fellowships for Southeast Texas and the Greater Gulf

Applications due March 1, 2024.


The Center for History and Culture of Southeast Texas and the Upper Gulf Coast at Lamar University invites applications for research and creative fellowships for the 2024-2025 academic year.  


The Center supports the production, curation, and transmission of knowledge about Southeast Texas and the greater Gulf regions with a commitment to multicultural, interdisciplinary, collaborative, and community-focused projects.


The Center encourages applications from any scholarly discipline or creative field. We are especially interested in work that considers our core geographic region or situates it within broader national, hemispheric, or global contexts. Prospective Fellows will produce specific outcomes that significantly contribute to our mission. The Center funds projects in art, environment, history, journalism, literature, performance, social sciences, and other forms of scholarly inquiry or creative endeavor.


Fellowships are open to scholars, creatives, advanced graduate students, and community leaders whose work contributes to the Center’s mission. Fellows may receive awards up to $5,000. If warranted, Fellows may apply for an additional year. The Center encourages applications for lesser amounts and may offer partial funding upon the recommendation of the Fellowship Jury.
