The Equity Scholars Program supports advanced doctoral students, postdocs, and early career professionals in a rigorous social science research project that will expand their ability to conduct inclusive and equitable (I&E) research, including culturally responsive research and evaluation. Each Equity Scholar will receive a total of $8,000 for this 8-month engagement, starting in November 2023 and ending in June 2024. The estimated time commitment is approximately one day per week.
