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 in the College of LAS whose primary scholarly or creative field lies within the humanities, and who are pursuing a humanities writing project related to the histories, legacies and/or cultures of people of color in the United States or in diaspora, are eligible to apply.

Fellowships will begin June 15, 2023 and continue through December 15, 2023. Fellows will receive two tranches of funding; $4000 evenly distributed in June, July and August to support initial research planning and active research and writing; and, contingent upon demonstrating adequate progress in the summer, $2000 evenly distributed over the Autumn Quarter as they draft and revise their conference papers.
