Confronting and Combating Racism Grant Program
Poverty Solutions and the Center for Social Solutions partner to support action-based research aimed at ending systemic and institutional racism. Successful action-based research projects cut across disciplines, and address challenges such as systemic oppression, organizational exclusion, institutional discrimination, neglectful policy, and violence against the minds, bodies, and cultures of people of color.
U-M’s College of Literature, Science, and the Arts; Michigan Engineering; the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy; the Law School; the National Center for Institutional Diversity; the Provost’s Office; and the School of Social Work also support the grant program, which is part of a larger, university-wide commitment to fund scholarship, teaching, and service initiatives related to racial equity.
The current program is supporting projects through May 2021.
