Event Description

The Cuban Research Institute (CRI), the Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center (LACC), and the Florida International University Libraries are pleased to request applications from scholars and graduate students for the Diaz-Ayala LibraryTravel Grants for spring and early summer 2017.These awards are offered in honor of Cristobal Diaz-Ayala, the prominent music collector and independent scholar who donated his Cuban and Latin American Popular Music Collection to FIU in 2001.

The grants provide scholars and graduate students the opportunity to conduct research in the special collections and archives related to Cuba and Cuban Americans at the FIU Green Library, thereby expanding access to its unique holdings and enhancing their value as national resources. CRI, LACC, and the FIU Libraries are offering three research travel grants of up to $2,000 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 collection are encouraged to apply. 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 residing in other countries are encouraged to apply for the remaining grant.
