Supporting student research is one of the most important goals of the Center for Race & Gender (CRG), which conducts interdisciplinary research on intersections between race, gender and social justice.

Since the establishment of CRG's Student Grants Program for Research and Creative Projects in 2003, CRG has awarded over $223,000 in grants to 145 undergraduates and 213 graduate students for research projects that are oriented towards academic work or that approach race and gender from the perspectives of media, fine arts, and performing acts. Your support is necessary to enable CRG to continue awarding student grants. 

That students understand they are capable of generating original and important research is at the core of CRG's research mission. Students are empowered through engaging in the production of research about historically subordinated communities and questions, uncovering hidden histories and sharing new stories.  We uplift and provide a spotlight for this emerging work.

CRG’s support enables students to pursue their academic passions and become intellectual change agents in undoing the entrenched racism and sexism that shapes knowledge production, furthering Cal’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.
