Grant of the Week: Cuban Heritage Collection Fellowships

AHA Staff | Jan 30, 2015

Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. We look for grants of potential interest to a wide range of scholars, but we also seek out grants for more specific fields. This week, we are featuring an exciting opportunity for scholars of Cuban history and culture.

The Cuban Heritage Collection (CHC) at the University of Miami Libraries invites applications for the 2015-2016 CHC Fellowships in support of individual research by graduate students and scholars who wish to use the research resources available in the collection. Awards are made in two categories:

CHC Graduate Fellowships: These awards are available for pre-prospectus and research fellowships for U.S.-based doctoral students. For more information and to apply, please visit apply.interfolio.com/27641.

CHC Arts in the Cuban Republic Fellowships: Awards support U.S.-based students and scholars with projects focused on topics related to the arts in Cuba between 1933 and 1958, including but not limited to visual arts, music, theater, dance, and architecture. For more information and to apply, please visit apply.interfolio.com/27642.

The CHC Fellowships require residency in the CHC for the duration of the award period. All applications are due on Sunday, February 1, 2015 and must be submitted electronically through the links provided above. Questions? Please write to chc@miami.edu.

Launched with a grant from the Goizueta Foundation, the CHC Fellowships program has made 55 awards since 2010. To learn more about the program and past CHC Fellows, visit library.miami.edu/chc/fellows.
