The Institute for African American Research is now accepting applications for our 2016-2017 research fellowship. These competitive awards support projects in any area of African or African American research and primarily focus on encouraging research and creative activities to generate projects that will enter the mainstream, raise public awareness and have the potential to secure additional funding for extended study. These grants emphasize interdisciplinary research, seek to encourage development of traditional grant applications, and work to promote scholarly interchange.
USC faculty and graduate students on all campuses are eligible to apply for one of the limited number of available fellowships. The awards for faculty will be $2,500 and $1,500 for graduate students. The deadline to submit grant proposals is April 1, 2016 at 11:59 PM with awards being announced by May 6, 2016. Grant proposals and questions may be emailed to Lindsay Arave at Arave@mailbox.sc.edu.
