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. Funds 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. Projects may range in duration up to 24 months.
