Internal Funding Opportunity: Research and Creative Projects for Equity and Justice

November 10, 2021

The Research and Creative Projects for Equity and Justice initiative, funded by Humboldt State University Sponsored Programs Foundation (HSU SPF) & the HSU Foundation, supports research and scholarship that benefits historically marginalized communities served by Humboldt State University, with a focus on black, indigenous, and other people of color (BIPOC).

This new internal funding opportunity is focused on supporting research, scholarship, and creative activities that benefit BIPOC communities in our region, including direct support for faculty and students at HSU who participate in research, scholarship, and creative activities. Proposals can request between $10,000-$40,000.

The supported activities could be focused on:

  • Catalyzing future research by supporting development of new or existing projects;
  • Expanding opportunities to engage through participation in research and other scholarship;
  • Building capacity and infrastructure that supports research on or off campus;
  • Addressing needs of communities in our region through action and applied research.
