Supplemental Funding for Research Support

Social justice is defined as the advancement of a just society by challenging injustice and valuing diversity so that all people have a right to unbiased treatment and a fair allowance of community resources. A just society exists when individuals’ well being is not constricted based on sexuality, gender, political affiliation, religion, age, belief, disability, socioeconomic circumstance, location, race, or group membership. 

The Social Justice Research Center’s mission is to support research with a social justice focus.  Scholarly/professional support funding is available to scholars who are pursuing professional experiences relevant to pursuing or disseminating research with a social justice aim. These experiences can come in the form of research support (such as books or data analysis software), data-collection support (such as funding for field work to collect data), etc.

All SJRC members are welcome to apply for funding (to become a member of the SJRC click here). Undergraduate or Graduate Students must include a letter of support from their advisor. While additional funding is not required, it enhances the application.  Note that submitting this application is not a guarantee of support.
