It is officially Student Leadership Award Season! The Student leadership award is a $1000 travel and research stipend granted to up to 10 undergraduate and graduate students with a passion for social justice and activism! This research stipend is eligible for students who attend The College of Charleston or a Historically Black College and University in the State of South Carolina. Students will be required to submit an application and a proposal detailing their individual project ideas to the RSJI team. Applications open on October 18, 2021. Please share this opportunity with qualifying students within your networks.


We are truly excited to be bringing back our South Carolina HBCU tour! The Avery Research Center Outreach Team will be visiting South Carolina Historically Black Colleges and Universities in an effort to connect their campuses with The Avery, and enlighten them on the Student Leadership Awards. This interactive 6 stop tour will help us engage with students on each campus, give more details on the Student Leadership Awards, and be able to answer questions in real time. We look forward to meeting the amazing scholars and educators on this tour.

MUSEUM TOURS: The Avery Research Center offers self-guided tours Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1030AM-12PM and 2PM-330PM. For large groups we ask you limit 25 people or fewer per time slot for self-guided tours. Due to staffing shortages Avery will not be offering guided tours to the general public until further notice.

ARCHIVES: Researchers must have a consultation BEFORE making a research appointment.
