University of Florida Library Travel Grants for Latin American Studies

The Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida is offering library access grants for spring and summer 2019 for scholars from qualified U.S. colleges and universities to use the extensive resources of the Latin American and Caribbean Collection. The grants are funded by a Title VI National Resource Center grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

Recipients are awarded an average of $1,000 to support travel expenses such as airfare, ground transportation, lodging, and meals.

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.
