The small grants program and faculty grants program are now open for 2023-2024!
Faculty, Students and Staff are able to fund their DEI work through our Grants programs.
These projects should:
Support the scholarship of staff, students, and trainees from backgrounds historically underrepresented in science and medicine.
Enhance diversity related programs and initiatives, including external speakers.
Investigate diversity related topics, health disparities, or involve underrepresented or sexual minority populations
We fund BSD or UCMC staff, students, or trainees (trainees = graduate students, postdocs, or house staff). Applicants must not have received one of our Small Grants within the last 12 months.
