The Frank Bonilla Fellowship Fund
This fellowship supports the advancement of the field of Puerto Rican Studies in honor of the legacy of Dr. Frank Bonilla (1925-2010). The fund supports Hunter College undergraduate and graduate students who express a strong interest in Puerto Rican Studies and their research in this field. Students for this category will submit a one page proposal on a topic related to Puerto Rican Studies and commit to work with researchers at the Center for Puerto Rican Studies. Near the end of each semester, submissions for the best research papers will be reviewed. Frank Bonilla Fellows receive a stipend of up to $1000. A selection committee will evaluate proposals and research papers and make a determination for the awards.
