Goizueta Foundation Graduate Fellowship Program

The Goizueta Foundation Graduate Fellowship Program provides assistance for supporting doctoral research at the Cuban Heritage Collection (CHC). The goal of the Goizueta Graduate Fellowships is to engage emerging scholars with the materials available in the CHC and thus contribute to the larger body of scholarship in Cuban and Cuban diaspora studies. Applicants with an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Cuba and its diaspora, of any time period are encouraged to apply.

Launched in 2010 with a generous grant from The Goizueta Foundation, the program has grown to support the research of 109 emerging scholars from 43 universities. In 2015 the Foundation made a $1 million gift to endow the program as part of the University’s Momentum2 campaign, allowing the CHC to continue awarding research funding to doctoral students and candidates enrolled in universities across the United States.
