Faculty Allies Diversity Grants 2018–19 Awardees

Rackham Graduate School announces the awardees of the 2018–19 Faculty Allies Diversity Grants. These grants are designed to fund activities for current graduate students to enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts in the areas most relevant to the students in a designated graduate program. The grants are meant to be useful for those seeking seed money to pursue ideas that are new and innovative for their graduate program as related to DEI.
