Faculty Fellowship on Latin American and U.S. Latino Research


Since 2003, the Center for Latino Research (CLR) has administered the CLR Faculty Fellowship on Latin American and U.S. Latino Research, which is supported by the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences, and occasionally other college deans (when applicants represent their Colleges). The Fellowship award consists of a one-quarter academic release from teaching to pursue a project of original thought and new research, or expanding from an earlier project. In addition, the CLR provides up to 100 hours of student research assistance during the research period.

2016-2017 Faculty Fellowship Application
Applications must include an updated Curriculum Vitae, and letters of support from the faculty member's Department Chair and College Dean. Applications are due the first Friday of March, each year.

Application Deadline: February 5, 2016     |     Apply Here​


Fellowship Requirements
At the conclusion of the research period, Oral and Written reports are required: (1) By the end of the fellowship period, or by the next academic quarter, the Fellow will provide an oral public presentation on his/her findings and experience to be scheduled and promoted by the CLR; (2) Fellow must provide to CLR offices, within two subsequent academic quarters, a written document (either a written progress report on research findings, or a draft/article in preparation for publication).

Application Eligibility
All full-time, tenure-track and tenured faculty at DePaul University are eligible, regardless of discipline. Junior faculty will receive priority consideration upon demonstrating an excellent proposal. Faculty who have received the CLR Faculty Fellowship previously may re-apply after two years from the previous year of fellowship. Click here​ to view guidelines and required documents.
