The Department of History is pleased to announce the 2018-2019 competition for a fellowship award to conduct work for a dissertation on the Iberian Atlantic World prior to national independence. Preference will be given to those proposals requiring research in foreign archives and libraries and to graduate students completing their doctoral studies at FIU. Students meeting the eligibility criteria are invited to apply for the Cook Scholarship for Research on the Colonial Iberian Atlantic World, 2018-2019. The selected fellow will receive funding that can be used to conduct a trip for preliminary research. The award of up to $ 500 can be used to cover research related expenses, including supplies (non-electronic), books, travel, data acquisition, and data transcription.
A one-page proposal describing clearly the research project and how the funds will be used, along with a CV and budget should be submitted electronically in a single file saved with the last name of the applicant and sent to email@example.com by April 23, 2018. The award will be announced by April 30 and the student shall have six months, counted from the time of notification, to make use of the funds. After six months the award shall expire. The recipient will be expected to produce a one-page report describing research activities and how the funds were used.
