The Office of the Vice President for Research has announced a new grant program aimed at catalyzing rigorous, solution-oriented research on social justice topics. The Social Justice Impact Grants (SJIG) program seeks proposals that address criminal justice reform, housing segregation/gentrification, systemic racism, achievement gaps, health disparities, environmental justice, and related topics. The program will fund 3-6 awards per year with total budgets of $25,000 - $50,000 for a 12 month period. SJIG funds are not meant to provide sole support for research activities; applicants who leverage other (external) funds and UMN resources will be prioritized. The SJIG program will accept applications on a rolling basis beginning Nov. 1, 2020, and continue to accept and select applications until program funds are dispensed/allocated.
