The STRC seeks applications for its four, six-month Graduate Research Fellowships. These Research Fellowships are part of the Social Transformation Research Collaborative (STRC), which supports interdisciplinary research in literature and language, history and culture. The STRC is working to demonstrate how the humanities deepen our understanding of ourselves and our society, and empower us to act, ethically and responsibly, to counter racism, dismantle violence, and build a more just and equitable society.

MA students whose primary scholarly or creative field lies within the humanities who are pursuing a project related to the annual theme: Influencers for Racial and Social Justice. The project should engage the histories and/or cultures of people of color (in the United States or in diaspora).

Fellowships will begin in July 2022 and continue through December 2022. Fellows will receive a $6000 over the summer and Autumn quarter to pursue their research projects under the mentorship and guidance of faculty sponsors in LAS. They will also have a travel budget of $750.
