The Japanese American Archival Collection Research Fellows Program (JAAC RFP) provides two (2) annual fellowships up to $3,000.00 for individuals or research teams. Researchers who live within a 100-mile radius of Sacramento are eligible for up to $500.00 for room and board if needed; other support will be considered.
The annual JAAC RFP supports the use of the Japanese American Archival Collection by research fellows for scholarly research and creative end-products relating to the Japanese American experience including, marginalization, racism, the Constitution of the United States, as well as the principles of democracy and social justice.
The JAAC RFP is funded through the California State University, Sacramento University Library’s Endowment for the Japanese American Archival Collection.
2023/2024 Japanese American Archival Collection Research Fellow
The University Library is please to announce the first JAAC Research Fellow, Ashlynn Deu Pree. Her research project, “Affects of the Mixed Marriage Policy on Incarcerated Japanese Americans,” will use the JAAC to explore the impact of this military enforced policy on the lives and culture of those affected.
Ms. Deu Pree received her bachelor’s degree in History from the University of California, Santa Barbara and has been living in Japan for the last three years as an English teacher. She will join the fall 2023 graduate student cohorts at Sacramento State, which she chose specifically for access to the JAAC.
