American Indian History of the West Research Fellowship
The American Indian History of the West Research Fellowship was developed out of a deep affinity of the West with the rich cultural and historic traditions at ASU that created this truly unique and diverse area. The Fellowship seeks to support and advance the scholarship, focused on this diverse area by facilitating the travel and research necessary to make a meaningful contribution to the fields of American Indian History/Studies, federal-Indian policies, and Indigenous relations with other peoples or the natural environment.
To achieve this end, the College of Liberal Arts and Science, the School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies and Regents' Professor Dr. Donald Fixico have partnered with the Labriola National American Indian Data Center and Distinctive Collections to support a doctoral student or scholar outside the Phoenix area. This includes nation-wide and international scholars, to travel and conduct research within the primary source archival and special collections at Arizona State University
Why is the diverse history of the southwest important to me?
Race and Ethnicity Research Fellowship
The Race and Ethnicity Fellowship was first imagined as an intellectual response to the overwhelming historic to recent violence especially against men and women of color in America. The Fellowship seeks to foster scholarship that examines the state of affairs and historic intersections of race and violence in the West, looking to the past as ways to understand the present and inform future relations.
The College of Liberal Arts and Science, the School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies and Regents' Professor Dr. Donald Fixico have partnered with the Labriola National American Indian Data Center and Distinctive Collections at all ASU libraries to provide the resources to explore these complex relationships. The Race and Ethnicity Fellowship was created to provide travel and research support to conduct important research within the primary source archival and special collections at all ASU libraries. The fellowship is designed to encourage doctoral students and scholars outside the Phoenix area, including nation-wide and international scholars, to utilize vital primary and rare secondary sources that would otherwise be inaccessible to aid in the applicant’s research.
