Grant for the Study of Race, Ethnicity, and Migration


Deadline: November 27th, 2023

REM grantThis grant supports projects and initiatives that demonstrate a substantial engagement with questions of race, ethnicity, and/or immigration across Latin America, Caribbean, U.S. Latinx communities, and the Latin American diaspora around the world. Projects focused on race, ethnicity, and/or migration of a comparative and transcultural nature, connecting Latin America and the Caribbean to other regions of the world are also welcome. Grants for collaborative and public facing projects are especially welcome.

Prior REM grants have included student films, photographic and art projects and exhibits, online archives, research trips, reading groups, speakers, and other activities.

Most awards fall between $500-$3000. There is a maximum of $4000.

For students: The activities funded by the grant must be completed before graduation from Brandeis.

This grant is not intended to replace funding for research and travel through the Jane’s grant, or LACLS’s support for student programming, for which monetary support is ongoing during the academic year.

If you have an idea with the thematic areas of the grant but are unsure of how to express it or have any questions, please be in touch with us. We would love to work with you to support your idea.
