Transformative Justice Graduate Research Grant
Application Due: Friday, November 12
Race and Ethnic Studies owes much of its origin to anti-racist and anti-colonial movements that transpired outside of the university. It was intended as a political education component of those struggles that would use the space and resources of colleges and universities to refine how systemic oppression was understood; to de-subjugate knowledge from the dominion of Eurocolonial disciplines or thought; to create new strategies of anti-racist activism; to train new generations of committed social justice leaders; and to generate visions of other possible worlds.
The Council for Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES) at Northwestern University honors and values this original impetus and endeavors to enliven it further. To this end, CRES invites applications for grants that will fund graduate research projects committed to transformative justice.
