Summer Short-term Fellowship
Through a rigorously reviewed international competition, the Black Metropolis Research Consortium offers one-month residential fellowships in Chicago for its Summer Short-term Fellowship Program. Since 2009 our Fellowship Program has engaged scholars, artists, writers, and public historians to better formulate new historical narratives of the Black experience. The new, original research and art developed through this program are significant as it illuminates the national and international importance of Chicago to African American history.
