Call for proposals: ISLAA Research Grant Fall 2023
Submission period: September 15–October 15, 2023

ISLAA is delighted to announce the call for proposals for the ISLAA Research Grant Fall 2023. Grantees are offered the opportunity to conduct novel investigations into themes, geographies, and chronologies of modern and contemporary art and visual culture from Latin America, the Caribbean, and the diaspora. During our open call for proposals, we invite MA and PhD students enrolled in graduate university programs in the US and abroad to apply.

The ISLAA Research Grant aims to expand access to research funding by supporting emerging scholars. Research may be conducted anywhere in the world and must be directed toward the completion of master’s theses or doctoral dissertations, peer-reviewed journal articles, or conference presentations. Research activities may include consulting resources at libraries, museums, and archives; interviewing artists, curators, and scholars; arranging studio visits; and/or conducting field research. The Research Grant will award grantees an award of up to $2,500 USD. Grantees will be chosen by a selection committee of scholars and art professionals.

Application materials include (but are not limited to) a research proposal, calendar, and itinerary. Find out more about grant conditions and submission requirements here.
