Every week, Perspectives Dailyshowcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the American Slavery’s Legacy across Space and Time: Small Grants Program.


The SSRC invites proposals for small grants to support the establishment or facilitation of projects that explore the ongoing social, economic, political, and cultural impacts of slavery in the contemporary United States, through the lens of the GU 272 and their descendants. The SSRC seeks proposals for projects that aim to contribute substantially to our understanding of the underlying mechanisms driving racial inequality over generations and at different scales: not simply at the geographic or structural level, but also at the individual and family levels. This program is particularly interested in projects that foreground community-academic collaboration.


Applicants are encouraged to apply only for the amount of funding their teams will realistically need in a 12-month period, and funding will be assessed on the relative scale and needs of the proposed project. Grant amounts may go up to $25,000.
