The SSRC Working Group on Cuba was established in 1997 in partnership with the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) and the Academy of Sciences in Havana, with the purpose of extending and broadening scholarly relations between Cuba and the United States. Since that time, the program has provided funds to facilitate travel by researchers to and from Cuba, to enable the translation or publication of scholarly works by Cuban researchers, and to assist Cuban libraries, archives, and museums in developing and maintaining resources for scholarly access.
