Racial Equity Fund

The AAUP has set aside a special grant fund to provide grants to AAUP chapters and state conferences to support programs that promote and support racial equity at the chapter, conference, campus, and/or state level. Any AAUP state conference or AAUP chapter in good standing may apply.

To apply for a grant from the Racial Equity Fund, the chapter or state conference should provide a short explanation of the proposed program, how much grant funding is being requested, and how the grant funds will be used to further racial equity work at the conference, chapter, campus, or institution level. A short paragraph should suffice. Please note that grant awards will not exceed a maximum of $5000 per calendar year.

As additional documentation, the chapter or conferences should include, a copy of the conference/chapter’s budget and their most recent bank statements, a copy of the chapter or conference racial equity plan, and any other required documents.

Grant applications will be reviewed on a quarterly basis and grants will be awarded by the AAUP Council at its discretion.
Please direct all grant applications and questions to [email protected].
