In support of the Provost’s Anti-Racism Initiative, and in partnership with the Rackham Graduate School, the National Center for Institutional Diversity’s Anti-Racism Collaborative offers summer research grants that aim to support engagement in research projects focused on racism, racial equity, and racial justice while advancing graduate student progress toward a degree. Grants may provide support for a student’s own project extending from their faculty advisor’s research, or for a student’s independent scholarship supervised by a faculty mentor.

CompLit Ph.D. student Imani Cooper Mkandawire was awarded for her project: "Ancestors and Algorithms: African and Black Diasporic Knowledge Systems for Ethnocomputing"
