Monroe Fellows Research Grants

The Monroe Fellows Research Grants aim to promote research on the Gulf South. Although independent scholars, writers, and creative artists whose projects encompass the Gulf South may apply, the Monroe Fellows competition is open mainly to tenured and tenure-track faculty at Tulane. Each award runs for twelve months and can be for as much as $10,000. Grant funds can be used to support individual research activities. These include (but are not limited to) travel to collections, the purchase of essential materials or equipment for research projects, and hiring research assistants. Typically three or four of these grants are awarded every semester. The next deadline will be April 1, 2016, followed by November 1, 2016.

Grants will be awarded on the merit of the proposed research, and its relationship to the broader goals and mission of the Center for the Gulf South—to explore the region’s rich history and culture and to place the Gulf South, including the areas of the Caribbean and Latin America with which it has been historically linked, in a larger national and international context. On the theory that good research should result in better teaching, applicants that evince an understanding of how their project might enrich their current classroom offerings will receive special consideration.

Awardees are required to do the following:

  • Present their research findings in a seminar or afternoon talk toward the end of the grant period.
  • Submit a 5-7 page essay written for general audiences, for inclusion in the forthcoming online journal Gulf South: A Journal of Call and Response.
  • Submit a final report that includes an accounting of expenses and a web-ready summary of the project including pictures and short personal bio.

Finally, Monroe Fellows should expect to be called on from time to time to serve on the selection committee that award grants to future applicants.

Monroe Fellows Research Grant proposals should include the following:

1. 500-word project summary
2. project narrative of no more than five double-spaced pages
3. proposed budget
4. CV
5. work sample, such as pertinent or previous scholarly article, essay, film (send link and note 10-min excerpt time code start), audio, or images.

Please submit all proposals electronically to Rebecca Snedeker at rsnedek1@tulane.edu.



Global South Research Grants

The New Orleans Center for the Gulf South at Tulane University invites proposals from scholars in the arts, humanities, and social sciences for research projects focusing on the Gulf South as it intersects with the study of the Global South. We especially encourage proposals that place the region in a global context. Between ten and twelve fellowships will be awarded annually, with a maximum grant of $3,000.00 The fellowship should be used as a travel grant to the region for archival research and/or fieldwork, or it can be used to defray expenses while in the area.

Awardees will be required to submit a final report that includes an accounting of expenses and a web-ready summary of the project including pictures and short personal bio.

Awardees will be strongly encouraged to present their research findings in a seminar or afternoon talk toward the end of the grant period.

Global South Research Grant proposals should include the following:

1. 500-word project summary
2. project narrative of no more than five double-spaced pages
3. proposed budget
4. CV
5. two letters of recommendation. Mail letters directly to:
        Rebecca Snedeker
        New Orleans Center for the Gulf South
        112 Newcomb Hall
        New Orleans, LA 70118


The next deadline will be Tuesday, March 29, 2016. This grant is on an annual cycle, and the following deadline will be in March or April 2017.

Fellows based in New Orleans and within 1-2 hours driving distance should expect to be called on once to serve on the selection committee that awards grants to future applicants.

Please submit all proposals electronically to Rebecca Snedeker at rsnedek1@tulane.edu.
