Current Opportunities for Cuban Research Institute

Díaz-Ayala Library Travel Grants

Opportunity Type: Scholarship
Application Deadline: March 02, 2019

The grants provide scholars and graduate students the opportunity to conduct research on the special collections related to Cuba and Cuban-Americans at the FIU Green Library, thereby expanding access to its unique holdings and enhancing its value as a national resource. CRI, LACC, and the FIU Libraries are offering three research travel grants of up to $1,500 each to offset the costs of a minimum one-week stay to use the collections. Scholars and graduate students in the humanities and the social sciences whose work will be enhanced by using the resources of the collections are encouraged to apply. Priority will be given to scholars who are not previous recipients of the award. Due to our fiscal year, at least one award recipient will be required to complete his/her travel by May 15, 2015. Two of the awards will be given to U.S.-based scholars or graduate students, in accordance with the requirements of LACC’s U.S. Department of Education Title VI Grant. Those based in other countries are encouraged to apply for the other grant.
