Williams Institute LGBTQ & Racial Justice Small Grants Program

Application Deadline: March 19, 2021

  • For graduate students and junior faculty
  • Research topics on LGBTQ populations, especially communities of color
  • Grants range from $1,000 to $7,500

The Williams Institute’s LGBTQ & Racial Justice Small Grants Program aims to encourage new research on LGBTQ populations, with a particular focus on emerging issues at the intersections of race, sexual orientation, and gender identity. The Program is designed to support work that will have a direct impact on law and policy.  Scholars from a variety of disciplines, including social sciences (e.g., economics, sociology, demography, social psychology), public health, law, and public policy, are encouraged to apply.

The program promotes three goals:
• Generating sound research on LGBTQ populations, specifically those with multiple
marginalized identities including LGBTQ Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC),
that has a direct impact on law and policy.
• Developing a better understanding of how laws and public policies impact the lives of LGBTQ
• Translating and disseminating such research into forms (issue briefs, fact sheets, legislative
testimony, etc.) that are frequently used to convey research to policy makers.
