A new grant program will support student projects to address Black historical studies within the Canadian context, barriers caused by racial oppression, Anti-Black racism, and advocacy throughout Canada and globally.
The Anti-Black Racism Student Leadership Experience Grants are intended to foster student-led research and leadership skills, enhance student engagement and the student experience, and assist in the training of highly creative and motivated students. It has been developed to advance the cause, awareness, and advocacy of dismantling Anti-Black racism on campus and in the broader community.
Five grants will be awarded in the amount of $10,000 each with a duration of up to 18 months. Applications from student groups, campus clubs, undergraduate or graduate students collaborating with a faculty supervisor are due no later than 4 p.m. April 15.
