A Partnership Competitive Fellowship Program for Projects Studying Afro Latino and Afro Latino Communities - Issues of Social Justice, Equity and Inclusion in Latin America and the Caribbean

Hunter College/City University of New York, the Global Afro Latino and Caribbean Initiative (GALCI), and the Franklin H. Williams Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) are searching for financing for Visiting Fellowships in collaboration with sponsoring institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean. The Fellowship program was financed in part with funds from the Ford Foundation Fall 2003/Spring 2004 and Fall 2005.

Issues of increased social inclusion for historically marginalized African descendant groups have become important topics of social justice, equity and Inclusion in Latin America and the Caribbean. Compensatory social programs and national efforts to define and implement affirmative action programs are engaging scholars and social activists throughout the Western Hemisphere. In an effort to advance information and research on these important social programs, Hunter College, GALCI and CCCADI plan to partially support researchers from Latin America and the Caribbean working on these topics. Fellows will spend a semester hosted by Hunter College, CUNY.
