Attending a conference related to social justice? Apply for scholarship support

The Social Justice Institute is accepting scholarship applications from students interested in attending conferences with a focus on social justice and related issues. A scholarship fund has been established for undergraduate and graduate students to attend conferences that will enhance their educational, professional and personal development.

The scholarships (of up to $500 each) can be used to assist with travel, registration fees, lodging or other approved expenses.

The application deadline is Sept. 8.

The Social Justice Institute leadership team will look for applications to attend conferences that, in some way, support and uphold the institute’s definition of social justice: eradicating systems of oppression with the purpose of advancing fairness and equality through the redistribution and expansion of resources, and exalting human dignity and respect.

The application is available online.
