2008 Research Fellowships for the Study of the Global South
The Collaborative Research Group for the Study of the Global South at Tulane University invites proposals from scholars in the arts, humanities, and social sciences for research projects focusing on the Gulf South states of Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. We especially encourage proposals that examine the Gulf South region in a global perspective and promote the understanding of the impact of the Gulf South on the world and of the world on the Gulf South. Fellowships are $3,000 each and may be used for any expenses related to the project. Preference may be given to projects that require research to be conducted in the Gulf South region (e.g., for archival research or fieldwork). Contingent upon the availability of travel funding, fellowship recipients must be willing to present their research at Tulane University. Graduate students as well as those who already hold the PhD or its equivalent are eligible to apply.
Applicants need not be based in the United States.
Applications should be submitted electronically to Nicole Westerfield at firstname.lastname@example.org and should include
(1) a 400-word project summary,
(2) a project narrative of no more than five double-spaced pages,
(3) a proposed budget,
(4) a curriculum vitae of no more than two pages, and
(5) 2 letters of recommendation from scholars able to assess the quality of the proposed project (these should be submitted electronically by the recommenders to Nicole Westerfield at the above address).
All application materials must be received no later than April 30, 2008 to be considered. Recipients of the fellowship will be asked to submit a final report, approximately 3-5 pages in length, summarizing the research activities they conducted with funding from the fellowship. The report will be due no later than September 1, 2009.
