A number of friends and colleagues of Frank Tannenbaum have wanted to perpetuate his memory in a meaningful way which could reflect his values and goals as a teacher and as a person. A fund has been established to support Frank Tannenbaum Fellowships in Latin American Studies. The fund would be used for research in Latin America by Columbia scholars with emphasis given to student support. Limited funds would also be available for fellowships at Columbia University including some students from Latin America.

Of interest to teachers of Latin American history and to specialized libraries are various newsletters that have come across our desk in recent months. Presenting a “left-liberal” and/or radical point of view on current developments in the hemisphere and often deriving support at least in part from North American church groups, they are of interest both because of their perspective and for the collation of otherwise neglected factual information. The first one listed has been in existence for several years, but the others appear to be more ephemeral in nature. We have included addresses and price for the individual subscriptions for the convenience of interested readers. From time to time we will present similar information about other newsletters representing other viewpoints.

The Foreign Area Fellowship Program is inviting applications for its annual fellowship competition for the 1973-74 academic year.

The Latin America and Caribbean program of the FAFP is an international program which offers a comprehensive series of predoctoral and postdoctoral appointments, including professional internships, for the advancement of training and research in Latin American and Caribbean studies. Appointments are made to graduate students, young professionals and advanced scholars. Various sectors of the Program offer appointments to individuals in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Latin America and the Caribbean, and elsewhere.

The Program has been greatly expanded and includes research fellowships (U.S.), professional internships, inter-American research training seminars, collaborative research training fellowships, advanced research grants, advanced collaborative research grants, commissioned group research projects, conferences, and proposals for future seminars.

In 1972-73 the principal new feature of the Program is the extension of eligibility or appointments for advanced research, previously available only to North Americans, to include scholars in Latin America, the Caribbean and elsewhere. In addition, opportunities for collaborative research with Latin American and Caribbean scholars have been extended to scholars from Western Europe and other regions.

Another special feature is that all recipients of doctoral dissertation research fellowships, training fellowships and internships are required to have a mutually beneficial affiliation with a university or other institution in the country where work is carried out. Recipients of grants for advanced research are also encouraged to arrange such affiliation.

Applications are accepted for doctoral dissertation research in the social sciences, the humanities, and the professions, with preference given to dissertation topics of contemporary relevance concerned with cultural, economic, political, social or scientific aspects of development.

Announcements and fellowship applications may be obtained by writing to the Foreign Area Fellowship Program, 110 East 59th Street, New York, New York 10022.
