2011-2012 Diversity and Inclusion Grants


The Advisory Committee for the Diversity and Inclusion Grants welcomes proposals that strengthen and promote diversity on campus, including differences in gender, race, ethnicity, geography, socioeconomic status, age, politics, philosophy, disability and sexual orientation.

The Diversity and Inclusion Grant Program is designed to support Washington University faculty or administrative leaders with ideas for programmatic initiatives that promote diversity and inclusion at the university. In particular, proposals that address work environment, recruitment and retention of diverse faculty and administrative staff, and cultural competence are especially relevant.

Funding is one-time only, and awards will range in size up to a maximum of $30,000.

Successful proposals should:

  • Involve collaboration within or across departments, units or schools
  • Demonstrate tangible results (e.g. metrics of success for the short term as well as metrics to measure future impact)
  • Include departmental or school funding support (financial and/or other)

A list of successfully funded programs from 2011-12 is available here
