THIS IS AN INTERNAL DEADLINE ONLY. THE 2019 DEADLINE FOR APPLICTIONS HAS PASSED. THE LAST DEADLINE WAS ON MARCH 18, 2019. PLEASE CHECK THE WEBSITE FOR UPDATES.  

Their purpose is to enable faculty researchers from other U.S. colleges and universities to use the extensive resources of the Latin American and Caribbean Collection in the University of Florida Libraries (www.uflib.ufl.edu/lac), thereby enhancing its value as a national resource. The grants are funded by a Title VI National Resource Center grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Recipients are awarded an average of $1,000 to support travel expenses such as airfare, ground transportation, lodging, and meals.  Grantees are expected to remain in Gainesville for at least one week and, following their stay, submit a brief (2–3 pp.) report on how their work at UF Libraries enriched their research project and offer suggestions for possible improvements of the Latin American Collection.

Applicants must be current scholars at a U.S. college or university and must have research and teaching interest in Latin America. Priority will be given to Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and community colleges. Faculty and graduate students from Puerto Rico are highly encouraged to apply.
