2012-2013 Graduate Fellows announced

We are happy to announce the 2012 CHC Graduate Fellows, generously funded by The Goizueta Foundation and the Amigos of the Cuban Heritage Collection.

The Cuban Heritage Collection Graduate Fellowships provide assistance to graduate students who wish to use the research resources available in the Cuban Heritage Collection at the University of Miami. The goal of these Fellowships is to engage emerging scholars with the materials available in the Cuban Heritage Collection and thus contribute to the larger body of scholarship in Cuban, hemispheric, and international studies.
