Grants for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

Three offices and centers provide Grants for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging under Belonging at Yale.  The grants support activities initiated by students, registered student organizations, and faculty members.

The Office of the Secretary and Vice President for Student Life, the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration, and the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning invite applications in four open periods throughout the year.  Deadlines for 2019-2020 are October 2, December 4, February 19, and June 30.

All Yale University students and registered student organizations may apply for funding for a program, event, or speaker that promotes a sense of belonging and community at Yale. The events should educate the community about challenges to inclusion on our campus and in society; facilitate the exchange of ideas across ideological, political, or other differences; and/or celebrate examples of excellence and achievement. Preference will be given to proposals that present multiple points of view, and to collaborations among two or more student organizations.

All Yale faculty may apply for funding for events featuring invited scholars or practitioners that might include academic conferences, speaker series, film screenings, seminars, colloquia, or roundtables. Any programming should address issues of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging related to scholarship, pedagogy, campus climate, and/or institutional diversity.
