The Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity & Equity offers a limited number of Small Grants of up to $1,000 to support activities related to the advancement of the CRE2 mission, three CRE2 pillars, and the 2020-2022 CRE2 Programmatic Themes. These grants are reviewed on a rolling basis and will be awarded until the funds are exhausted. The Small Grants program seeks to be responsive to the typical resource needs scholars face while undertaking research, exhibitions, and other creative works on the subjects of race and/or ethnicity. Examples include books, subventions, editing costs, research assistance, and travel for research or conferences. Small Grants are intended to help address immediate needs of the research community that may arise outside of larger grant opportunities for funding. Larger grant requests will remain the purview of other grant programs.
