The University of Miami Cuban Heritage Collection (CHC) is calling for applications for the 2016-2017 Goizueta Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships. Doctoral students who wish to use the rare and historical resources available in the CHC for dissertation research, or explore the Collection pre-prospectus, may be eligible for fellowships between one and three months with stipends ranging from $1,500 to $3,000 per month.
Launched in 2010 with a grant from The Goizueta Foundation, the program has grown to support the research of 67 emerging scholars from 35 universities. Now on its fifth year following a $1 million endowment by The Goizueta Foundation, the program aims to engage emerging scholars with the materials available in the CHC, thus contributing to the larger body of scholarship in Cuban, American, Latin@, hemispheric, and international studies. The 2016-2017 award recipients will be the first class of Goizueta Fellows.
The CHC awards Goizueta Graduate Fellowships in two categories:
Graduate Pre-Prospectus Summer Fellowships
Pre-Prospectus Summer Fellowships will allow doctoral students to determine how the Cuban Heritage Collection may serve their research needs as they prepare the dissertation prospectus. These are exploratory fellowships to determine if research resources in the CHC will support a dissertation. Fellowships of $1,500 will be granted for one month in residence between June 1 and August 31 of 2016.
Graduate Research Fellowships
Research Fellowships will support doctoral students who wish to use the Cuban Heritage Collection as a primary resource for a dissertation. Doctoral students applying for these fellowships will have completed their course work and passed their qualifying examinations. Fellowships of $3,000 per month will be granted for periods of one to three months.
All recipients must be in residence during the course of the fellowship and may not hold concurrent teaching positions.
Information about the fellowships and application process is available online at www.library.miami.edu/chc/fellows. The deadline for applications, which should be submitted electronically on Interfolio, is Monday, February 1, 2016. Questions? Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
