Every year, the Cuban Research Institute (CRI), the Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center, and Florida International University Libraries offer the Díaz-Ayala Library Travel Grants to study the special collections related to Cuba and Cuban Americans. These awards are offered in honor of Cristóbal Díaz-Ayala, the prominent music collector and independent scholar who donated his Cuban and Latin American Popular Music Collection to FIU in 2001.
Are you finishing a paper at the end of the semester and want some feedback? The FIU Center for Excellence in Writing will have writing tutors available on the second floor of the MMC library the next two weekends.
Please drop by, no appointment needed. Tutors will help attendees on a first-come, first-served basis. You may have a quick question you want to ask, or you may have a draft you want to share with a tutor. Whatever it is, you can get help!
