RITM Grants for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

The Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration’s RITM Programming Grants for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging support ambitious efforts designed or endorsed by Deans, Department Chairs, and other University administrators that foreground the study of race, indigeneity, or transnational communities. These events—featuring invited scholars and/or practitioners—might include academic conferences, speaker series, film screenings, seminars, colloquia, or roundtables.

In partnership with the Office of the Secretary and Vice President for Student Life and working with campus visitors, units of the University that receive this funding will also develop programming addressing issues of campus climate and/or institutional diversity. This ancillary program might take the form of a workshop, meal, meeting, or talk with faculty or students.

The Center will award a limited number of grants of $1,500 or more to successful applicants. Collaborations between more than one school or program of the University are particularly encouraged


To apply for funding, please complete the application below. Proposals will be reviewed on or around October 22 and November 26, 2018, and January 28 and March 4, 2019.

Applications will be considered by a review committee co-chaired by Kimberly Goff-Crews, Secretary and Vice President for Student Life, and Stephen Pitti, Founding Director of the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration. 

Additional guidelines, including the requirement for a brief final report, will be provided to successful applicants.
