The UNC and Duke Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, with funds from the U.S. Department of Education, provides college educators the opportunity to work as visiting research scholars with the Latin American and Caribbean library collections at Duke and UNC. Fellows are chosen in a competition targeting regional faculty from institutions of higher education in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic, with preference for regular faculty from community colleges and HBCUs. The project must have a clear focus on Latin America or the Caribbean. Priority is given to proposals that create a new course or add substantial content to an existing course at the applicant’s institution. More details are below.
