The Social Justice Institute is accepting applications from undergraduates, graduate students and faculty members for fellowships to fund research in the 2017-2018 academic year.
Applicants are invited to submit proposals to carry out research or implement projects related to social justice in any discipline. Social justice is defined as eradicating systems of power and oppression with the purpose of advancing fairness and equality through the redistribution of resources and opportunities, and exalting human dignity and respect.
Undergraduates may receive grants of up to $2,000 and graduate students may receive grants of up to $3,500. Faculty grants will range from $2,500 to $10,000. Stipends of $2,500 also are available for faculty members interested in redesigning existing courses to include a significant focus on social justice.
Fellowships may be used for airfare and lodging, program supplies, participant stipends, printing costs, data sets and other related expenses.
