University of Florida: Library Travel Research Grants

UF543630411

The Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida is offering library access grants for spring and summer 2018 for scholars from qualified U.S. colleges and universities to use the extensive resources of the Latin American and Caribbean Collection (www.uflib.ufl.edu/lac). The application deadline is February 16, 2018. [All travel must be completed by July 31, 2018.]

Seven or more travel grants of up to $1000 each will be made to cover travel and lodging expenses. 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.

The UF Libraries’ Latin American and Caribbean Collection (LACC) is one of the leading research collections of its kind. It consists of over ‌500,000 volumes, and includes all disciplines, although literature, the humanities, and the social sciences are best represented.  A sampling of the primary sources available in Special Collections can be found listed here.

The grants are funded by a Title VI National Resource Center grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
