Case Western Reserve University’s Social Justice Institute is offering fellowship and grant opportunities for graduate students and faculty members pursuing research or projects related to social justice in any discipline. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, April 1.

Social Justice Fellowships for Graduate Students

Graduate students are invited to apply for the social justice fellowship opportunity supporting research or projects related to social justice in any discipline for the 2022-23 academic year. Funding of up to $3,500 will be awarded for expenses associated with the research or project—subject to the number and quality of applications.

Graduate students seeking funding to support a Master of Arts thesis or PhD Dissertation research are especially encouraged to apply.

Proposals must explain the connection between social justice and the proposed work and include a detailed budget for how the requested fellowship funds will be used.

Faculty Research Grants in Social Justice

Research grants are available for tenured or tenure-track Case Western Reserve faculty members, or other faculty who demonstrate a long-term commitment to social justice. Grants will range from $2,500 to $10,000 (up to a total of $10,000). Up to four awards are expected—subject to the number and quality of applications. 

Proposed research may be premised on any discipline. Projects may range in duration up to 24 months. Applications to conduct clinical trials will not be accepted.

The principal investigator must be a Case Western Reserve faculty member. Faculty members are permitted to partner with postdoctoral fellows, graduate students or undergraduate students.
