CLR Faculty Fellowship

Twenty Years of the CLR Faculty Fellowship Program

Since 2003, the Center for Latino Research (CLR) has administered the CLR Faculty Fellowship, for research on Latin American and/or U.S. Latino issues, open to faculty in any discipline. The fellowship is supported by the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, and grants a one-quarter teaching release (2 classes) for archival research, study and writing, initiating a new project of original work or expanding from earlier projects involving book or article writing, preparing research and writing for a conference paper or major talk. In addition, the CLR provides up to 100 hours of student research assistant help during the research period.

This opportunity is open to full-time, tenure line faculty of any rank, with priority preference granted junior faculty, although it is the best proposal that will succeed. Following the fellowship period, within one academic quarter, CLR Fellows provide a short oral presentation on their findings and process, scheduled on campus by the CLR. Within one academic year, Fellows are required to submit a final outcome in writing to the Center, which can be an article or book chapter (drafted or completed, to be published), or written report.

Applications are reviewed and determined by a new Selection Committee each year, drawn from previous Fellows.
