Faculty: Apply for Social Justice Institute research grants; deadline Dec. 2

The Case Western Reserve University Social Justice Institute is making funds available for small grants of $2,500 to $10,000 to tenured or tenure-track faculty members or other faculty who can demonstrate long-term commitment to social justice at the university. The funds will support research related to social justice. Up to four awards are expected, subject to the number and quality of applications.

To receive funding, the proposed research must be focused on issues relevant to social justice. It may use field-specific primary and/or secondary sources. This may include research in archives and manuscript collections, artwork and musical scores, data collection and analysis, and examination of existing databases and literatures.

The proposed research may be premised on any discipline, e.g., humanities, social science, medicine, nursing, social work, etc. Applications to conduct clinical trials will not be accepted.

For all applications, the principal investigator must be a Case Western Reserve faculty member. Faculty members may wish to partner with a postdoctoral fellow or a graduate or undergraduate student.

The application is due to Shelley White at socialjustice@case.edu by 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 2. Questions about the grants can be directed to Timothy Black at  tsb25@case.edu. More detailed information is available.
