Applications due March 15, 2023.
The Center for History and Culture of Southeast Texas and the Upper Gulf Coast at Lamar University invites applications for research and creative fellowships for the 2023-2024 academic year.
The Center supports the production, curation, and transmission of knowledge about Southeast Texas and the greater Gulf Coast with a commitment to multicultural, interdisciplinary, collaborative, and community-focused projects. To achieve these goals, the Center supports the work of scholars, authors, artists, community leaders, and others who represent varied specializations and backgrounds.
Our fellowship program supports projects that contribute to the broader understanding of our region. The Center encourages applications from any scholarly discipline or creative field. We are especially interested in work that considers our core geographic region or situates it within broader national, hemispheric, or global contexts. Coordinating with director Jimmy L. Bryan Jr. and interim assistant director Margot Gage Witvliet, prospective Fellows will produce specific outcomes that significantly contribute to our mission. The Center funds projects in art, environment, history, journalism, literature, music, social sciences, and other forms of scholarly inquiry or creative endeavor. If circumstances permit, the Center may request Fellows to present their results with the Lamar University and Southeast Texas communities.
Fellowships are open to scholars, creatives, advanced graduate students, and community leaders whose work contributes to the Center's mission. Fellows may receive awards up to $5,000. The Center encourages applications for lesser amounts and may offer partial funding upon the recommendation of the Fellowship Jury.
Previous fellows have used our support for projects resulting in scholarly publications, short documentary films, oral histories, archival preservation, poetry anthologies, and music and theatrical perfromances.
Contact director Jimmy L. Bryan Jr. or visit the Center webpage for more information and application instructions.
