Funding Opportunities

Supported through the provost’s Anti-Racism Initiative, the Anti-Racism Collaborative will offer a set of grant programs totalling over $1.7 million to support research innovation and engagement of anti-racism research for public impact. These grant opportunities are available to all current University of Michigan (U-M) faculty, and also include opportunities for staff and student engagement. One goal in offering these different programs is to support scholarly engagement in our community for those at all stages — from brand new research collaborations and developing ideas, to building and expanding on existing research and collaborations in ways that advance knowledge and impact even more effectively and powerfully.

Faculty Anti-Racism Grant

The U-M Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR), in partnership with the Anti-Racism Collaborative, administers a grants program to catalyze interdisciplinary, cutting-edge research and scholarship on racial inequality and racial justice. Grants range in funding from $50,000 to $100,000.

Research Seed Grants to Advance Anti-Racism

Drawing on NCID’s Grants for Social Change model, small seed grants are available through the Anti-Racism Collaborative to support faculty research and scholarship on topics related to racism, racial equity, and racial justice. These grants support new ideas or allow for an expansion of existing projects in ways that significantly enhance theoretical and/or methodological rigor, precision, nuance. Grants range in funding from $5,000 to $20,000.

The 2021 grantees were announced in Fall 2021 (see the original call for proposals here).

Anti-Racist Digital Research Initiative Grants

The Anti-Racist Digital Research (ARDR) Initiative is a mini-grant program that supports early-stage digital scholarship projects that advance anti-racism and social justice in the humanities, arts, and humanistic social sciences. This program is a partnership with the U-M Library, the College of Literature, Sciences, and Arts Technology Services, and the National Center for Institutional Diversity’s Anti-Racism Collaborative.

The 2022 grantees were announced in Winter 2022 (see the original call for proposals here).
