Call for proposals: Tracing Race at ISU

Author: Erin Ridnour

Tracing Race proposals accepted until Nov. 3

The Tracing Race at Iowa State University Advisory Group is accepting proposals for digital projects that reveal the under-documented history of accomplishment and experience of people of color, and engage with the history of race at Iowa State University. The committee welcomes proposals from undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff in all disciplines. Undergraduate applicants are asked to identify a faculty or staff advisor for their project. Fall deadline for submission is Nov. 3, 2023.  

Proposals will now be accepted at any time and reviewed and selected once per semester. Due dates will be the first Fridays of November and April.

Additionally, students who submit proposals and serve as project lead will be considered for $2,500 awards to support their work. This is made possible by the Sanderson Family Library Assistantships Fund. Review our funding announcement for details.
