Application Deadline–November 15, 2021
The African American Intellectual History Society (AAIHS) is pleased to announce the 2022 C.L.R. James Research Fellowship to support research towards the completion of a dissertation or publication of a book. Named after Afro-Trinidadian theorist C.L.R. James, the research fellowships are intended to promote research in Black intellectual history by graduate students, independent scholars, and faculty members at any rank. Two fellowships of $2000 will be awarded this year to help cover the costs of domestic or international travel necessary to conduct research. In recognition of the ongoing challenges associated with COVID-19 and the difficulties of domestic and international travel, recipients of this year’s awards may use the funds for any research-related expense (i.e. to purchase books or other files needed for research projects). The award will be announced formally at the AAIHS Conference. Membership in AAIHS is required. Current AAIHS board members are not eligible.
All application materials should be received by November 15, 2021 (by 11:59pm EST). Please send the following documents in a single PDF document: short c.v. (no more than 3 pages), 3-5 page project proposal (double-spaced), budget, and arrange to have one letter of recommendation sent to email@example.com as an email attachment in Microsoft Word or PDF.
Applicants will be notified in March 2022. Funds must be used by December 30, 2022. Recipients will be required to submit a detailed report to the conference chair. Graduate student applicants must have passed their qualifying exams.
