The following applications are due by September 15, 2022 for emerging scholars at the undergraduate and graduate levels, based in Haiti and internationally (per award criteria):

Emerging Scholars Fund

HSA established the Student and Emerging Scholars’ fund during the 2006 conference. Two scholarships ($500 each) may be applied toward travel and accommodation expenses incurred for attending an HSA conference and/or presenting a specific research project concerning Haiti and/or the Haitian diaspora.

Michel-Rolph Trouillot Scholarship

This fund was started in 2012 to expand participation in HSA among Haiti-based academic and public scholars, artists, and professionals who might not be able to attend the conference without financial assistance.
