The Anti-Racism Collaborative will offer grants that support student engagement in research projects focused on racism, racial equity, and racial justice.
Anti-Racism Graduate Research Grants
Small grants will be available through the ARC for graduate students to support research projects focused on racism, racial equity, and justice. The funds will support students’ own projects that are extended from their faculty advisor’s research, or for independent scholarship supervised by a faculty mentor. A faculty support letter and detailed mentoring plan would be required.
Grantees are invited (not required) to join monthly meetings during the Fall and Winter semesters to share their research progress and challenges, discuss how to navigate academia as an anti-racism scholar, and to be in community with one another.
Graduate Student Research Fellow Opportunities in Anti-Racism Research Projects
Faculty who have research projects funded through the Anti-Racism Collaborative will have the opportunity to apply for additional subsidy funds to support graduate students (funding can support stipends or hourly pay, e.g. stipend for uncovered spring/summer periods, not tuition). Funding will support the projects themselves as well as provide the students with a rich interdisciplinary research exposure and professional experience. Project grantees must provide a thoughtful mentoring and professional development plan for the students.
