The 2019 call to select Jon Bilbao Visiting Research Fellow at The University Of Nevada, Reno was published on May 31, 2019, both at Etxepare Basque Institute and Center for Basque Studies’ websites. Once the call was closed, the selection committee met on July 16, 2019. The projects of each candidate were evaluated to form a list of candidates ordered by scoring. The decision was made by the Center for Basque Studies, the Basque Library, and the Etxepare Basque Institute together.
