The Office of the Vice President for Research is proud to announce the awardees of the 2023 Social Justice Impact Grants, Ji Youn Shin (College of Design), Sophia Vinogradov (Medical School), and Elizabeth Wrigley-Field (College of Liberal Arts). All three have submitted compelling proposals for research projects focusing on healthcare in marginalized communities. In support of these important proposals, OVPR is providing a total of $127,596.

Launched in 2020, the Social Justice Impact Grants aim to catalyze rigorous, solution-oriented research on social justice topics, including criminal justice reform, housing segregation/gentrification, systemic racism, achievement gaps, health disparities, and environmental justice. OVPR expects to support between three and six projects each year.
