Racial Justice Community Project Grant
The UWM Urban Studies Program has developed a grant program for Urban Studies majors and Urban Studies certificate students. This program is designed to help students pursue community-based activities that further racial equity and racial justice, broadly defined, in Milwaukee. Grants for up to $500 are available to support work on a project with a community partner or partners. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis except for the period of September 15 through October 15 when the UWM Panther Scholarship Portal is closed for annual software maintenance. Applicants should notify Jamie Harris (email@example.com) when they apply so that your application is viewed promptly. Dr. Harris can also be contacted directly with any questions.
Examples of projects include but are not limited to internships, volunteer positions, community organizing, urban gardening, and mentoring or tutoring of elementary or high-school students. Funding may be used for student compensation for unpaid work (such as unpaid internships), supplies and expenses, travel to and from community work sites, and other expenses associated with the community project. Projects must include a community partner, such as an organization or agency hosting internships or volunteer positions.
