Call for Participatory Action Research Fellowships in the Experienced Activist and Graduate Student categories.
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MAY 15, 2021
The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) is pleased to announce a call for the 2021-2020 Participatory Action Research Fellowships in the Experienced Activist and Graduate Student categories.
UUSC’s Participatory Action Research Fellowships are designed to strengthen and promote the role of participatory action research as a powerful tool to advance human rights and social justice. Through this fellowship program, UUSC provides two year-long grants, one to an activist with significant experience and one to a graduate student or recent graduate, to work collaboratively with our research team.
The fellowships seek applicants who are committed to community-led research practices that advance systemic change and the protection of human rights. Fellows are expected to conduct participatory research projects focused in one of UUSC’s programmatic areas (Climate Forced Displacement, Migrant Justice, Disaster Justice), in collaboration with UUSC’s partners and their research team. Successful applicants will be chosen based on their previous research and activism experience, their understanding of participatory methods, and the alignment of their proposal with UUSC and their partners’ human rights priorities.
In 2021, the Fellowships are focused broadly on the future of migration, disaster, and climate activism in a post-pandemic world. UUSC invites individuals committed to advancing equity and dismantling oppressive systems to apply for the Participatory Action Research Fellowships in the categories of experienced activist or graduate student. The Fellowships are open to candidates from anywhere in the United States.
