Call for Proposals
Deadline May 15, 2023
How does religion inspire your community to work with others in order to transform your world? We are looking for projects from Asian Pacific American religious groups that bridge differences and build coalitions to improve communities. We will fund and foster relationships, provide mutual support, and encourage the exchange of ideas across groups. Accepted proposals will receive $20,000 to support their work between fall 2023 and summer 2025. Funded project leaders have the opportunity to join biannual in-person and virtual gatherings with other grantees.
The goal of the proposal is to identify and select Asian American religious communities or sites of knowledge makers who will receive $20,000 in seed funding to catalyze their existing religiously-inspired coalitional justice work. Seed grant recipients will already be doing innovative work that relates to the broader research questions about the on-the-ground practices of religiously-inspired coalition justice work. These Site Leaders will enter into a two-year working relationship with the research team of Research Fellows. We envision a working relationship of co-equals between scholars and knowledge makers where the latter function with relative independence as local laboratories of justice work from which the research team can learn.
Submit answers to the four application questions below.
