The Program is supported by the National Council on Science and Technology (CONACYT) of Mexico; its purpose is to strengthen scholarly ties between Columbia and the academic and research community of Mexico. Its name honors Edmundo O’Gorman (1906-1995), one of the most influential Mexican historians of the twentieth century.
Appointments are available for any four to eight-week period during the 2020 calendar year. Preference will be given to projects that stress collaboration with Columbia faculty and use of available research resources at Columbia University and in New York City.
