About the CHC Graduate Fellowships
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.

The 2011 CHC Graduate Fellowships are generously funded by The Goizueta Foundation.

Please RSVP to or 305-284-4900.

New Graduate Research Series

New to graduate school and to the University of Miami? The Library has put together a series of workshops to help you navigate the wealth of resources available as you begin to think about your major research project. Start by learning about the resources and services available at the UM Libraries, then find out how to manage and organize the resources you’ve discovered, and finally learn about what to look for once your research is ready to be published.
