Fernandez Wins Grant

The Andrés Torres Paper Series seeks proposals from young scholars who have completed their dissertation research or obtained their doctoral degrees in the past five years. Selection for this award is through a competitive process. A national committee of Latino scholars convened by the Gastón Institute reviewed all proposals and selected 3 (three) proposals for the 2016 Andrės Torres Paper Series Award.

The Mauricio Gastón Institute is pleased to announce the winners of the second call for proposals for the Andrės Torres Paper Series Award, endowed by the Hildreth-Stewart Charitable Foundation and other private contributions.
