Since 2019, the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South awards one or two School of Liberal Arts faculty the Rosenthal Blumenfeld Gulf South Food Studies Fellowship to support a research project focused on Gulf South Food Studies and to design and launch a related course that includes an undergraduate research component and site-based experiential learning via class field trips. Projects can address other geographic regions but must be at least 40% grounded in the U.S. gulf south bioregion spanning Texas to Florida. In 2022, we launched a new fellowship award for graduate students.
Faculty must commit to offering the new course during the fellowship term and then at least twice more over the next four years. Applicants will be solicited through a request for proposal and/or open competition process. Faculty fellowships include a grant award for $5000. All fellows must submit a 1-3 page final report by May 15 in the fiscal year in which their fellowship takes place.
The fellowship funds are designated for the following:
Graduate student awards are $2500. Guidelines for AY24 will be posted by April 20, 2023 and proposals are due on May 10, 2023.
