Native American and Indigenous Studies Association

The premiere international & interdisciplinary professional organization for scholars, graduate students, independent researchers, and community members interested in all aspects of Indigenous Studies.


The Sequoyah National Research Center (SNRC) at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock invites proposals for its 2017-2018 Research Fellowship Program, which fosters research involving forms of Native expression in a wide range of disciplines.

The program encourages scholars to conduct research in the Center’s collections to support significant studies in a wide range of fields and subjects such as Indian removal from the Southeast, Native journalism and journalists, late 20th century and early 21st century tribal societies and economics, literary artists, entertainment, and others. Fellowships are intended to defray travel expenses and living expenses while recipients are conducting research in the SNRC.

Recipients of research fellowships are expected to spend at least a work week conducting research at the Center. The Center requests that, following their research, research fellows send the Center a copy of the results of their research in published form whenever it appears or in unpublished form if the research is not conducted for publication. The Center also requests notice of the presentation of the research in a public forum. Recipients will be expected to conduct their research between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018.

Two research fellowships of $1,500 each will be offered in the 2017-2018 academic year. The most significant criteria considered in awarding a fellowship are the research project's potential contribution to Native American studies and the extent to which the SNRC's collections support scholarship in a research subject. Consideration will also be given to the applicant's background and academic accomplishments if the applicant works in an academic setting. Academic affiliation, however, is not a requisite for receiving a fellowship.

An applicant should send a cover letter and a statement of the objectives of his or her project, the significance of the project, and relation of the proposed project to the applicant’s background, previous work, and future plans. Research fellowship applicants should attach a curriculum vita. Applications should be sent to SNRC Director Daniel F. Littlefield, Jr. at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Applications will be considered between March 1, 2017 and April 15, 2017. Awards will be made by May 1, 2017.

    Why new scholarships are not given to Universities as it would help them to create creative young researchers however as for as fellowship is concerned this is a positive step to do, Most of the students demands australian writings discount code to purchase quality content, this is a trick because finding codes is not an easy job for all those who are totally unaware of the way to find it or research it.

Really, I can't think what I watch is more suitable than a man, the woman he would not let him wait, punctual man definitely needs a good watch omega replica -- no man will take a stroll around the clock. To urge his men to grow up as a good man, send him a watch hublot replica is better.
