The Office of the Provost is issuing a request for proposals to provide seed grant funding for faculty within the Columbia community that engage with issues of structural racism. The goal of this initiative is to provide resources to enable collaborative dialogue, action, and insight for systemic change towards racial equity. We anticipate that awards will be funded up to $5,000. Projects that are complex, such as interdisciplinary collaborations, can be funded up to $10,000.
A Request for Proposals was issued on June 30, 2020. The application form can be found here and the submission deadline is September 17, 2020.
This program is part of the Addressing Racism: A Call to Action for Higher Education initiative of the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement.
