UD Anti-Racism Initiative (UDARI) Graduate Summer Scholars 

The UDARI Graduate Summer Scholars program provides highly motivated graduate students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a research or creative project based on race, anti-racism, or racial justice. The project should have a community engagement component or outcome. Scholars spend ten weeks during the summer in full time pursuit of their research or creative projects. Graduate students can use it for original research on their MA thesis or dissertation projects on race, anti-racism, or racial justice. Or, graduate summer scholars can apply to pursue aUDARI project such as studying UD's Black history by conducting oral histories or by examining UD's 19th land records to identify former enslavers on whose land the university now sits; working at a local Delaware museum, historical house, or other institution to help uncover Black, Latinx, or indigenous histories or by helping to decolonize the collection; or any other project including in the sciences that fits a focus on race, anti-racism, or racial justice. The product should be a paper, article, report, etc. At the conclusion of the program, scholars present their projects at a symposium. Scholars receive a stipend of $5,000.

Advisement

Students will assess their projects with assistance from UDARI.  They will submit a final report upon completion of the project.
