The Haitian Studies Association offers two different scholarships for scholars in Haiti and emerging scholars.
- Emerging Scholars Fund
- Michel-Rolph Trouillot Fund
Emerging Scholars Fund
HSA established the Student and Emerging Scholars’ fund during the 2006 conference. Since 2008 the HSA board has earmarked $1000 annually to support student research and participation in our annual 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. The deadline to apply is September 1st.
Michel Rolph Trouillot Scholarship
The Michel-Rolph Trouillot 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.
Asosyasyon Etid Ayisyen lanse fon Michel-Rolph Trouillot nan lane 2012 pou fasilite patisipasyon entelektyèl ki abite Ayiti (tankou pwofesè inivèsite, entelektyèl òganik, atis, ajan devlopman, etidyan ak pwofesyonèl), ki pa kapab asiste konferans lan san èd ekonomik.
Le Fonds Michel-Rolph Trouillot vise à élargir la participation à l’Association d’études haïtiennes des universitaires, chercheurs, artistes, intellectuels, et professionnels basés en Haïti et qui ne pourraient pas assister au colloque sans cette assistance financière.
