Talitha LeFlouria wins prestigious Carnegie Fellowship

April 30, 2018

Talitha LeFlouria has been awarded a coveted and prestigious fellowship from the Carnegie Corporation for her new project, “The Search for Jane Crow: Black Women and Mass Incarceration in America.” 

About the Fellowship:
Building on a century-old, philanthropic tradition of investing in creative scholarly research, Carnegie Corporation of New York today announced the 2018 class of Andrew Carnegie Fellows. As part of the so-called “brainy award,” 31 extraordinary scholars and writers will each receive up to $200,000, making it possible for them to devote their time to significant research, writing, and publishing in the humanities and social sciences.

A distinguished panel of jurors selected the fellows based on the quality of their proposals. As part of the criteria, they looked for high-caliber scholarship that applies fresh perspectives to some of the most pressing issues of our times, shows potential for meaningful impact on a field of study, and has the capacity for dissemination to a broad audience.
