The Richard and Constance Lewis Scholarships in Latin American and Iberian Studies

Mr. and Mrs. Lewis The College of Arts and Sciences administers the Richard and Constance Lewis Fellowships in Latin American and Iberian Studies for faculty and the Richard and Constance Lewis Scholarships in Latin American and Iberian Studies for students. Funded by the Richard and Constance Lewis Fund for Latin American and Iberian Studies, these programs provide funds for faculty development for the purpose of enhancing the knowledge of and interest in Latin American and Iberian subjects at the University of Louisville, as well as funds to support student study abroad in Latin America, Spain, and Portugal. Our faculty and students have traveled to Cuba, Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, México, Ecuador, Panamá, Spain, and Portugal. Applications are available in the fall and awards are announced in December. Preference is given to those students and faculty who have not previously received a Lewis Scholarship or Fellowship.
