The Racial Justice Summer Opportunity Grants provide a flexible opportunity for students to define how to advance racial justice initiatives. Projects and opportunities may include internships, research projects, partnerships with community-based organizations, summer courses, art projects, community service, conference attendance, and other opportunities, provided that the specific focus is on racial justice experiences, issues, and expressions.
Funding is available for a maximum of 8 weeks of the summer (maximum funding $3,800) or for shorter projects. Summer 2021 projects must be consistent with on-going Covid-19 restrictions, and must be carried out within the United States (a Williams Human Resources restriction). These grants are not available to graduating seniors.
