Social Justice in the Marketplace

Seng Poster

The Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts welcomes the submission of proposals from undergraduates with majors or minors in the College of Arts & Letters wishing to pursue research or creative projects exploring the relationship between market forces and social justice. Students may work alone or in teams and may design their projects independently or as part of a faculty research project.

Possible projects might include studies on the effects of globalization, social responsibility in trans-national corporations, workers’ rights and migrant labor, environmental standards, use and abuse of technology, health care, and rights of indigenous populations.

The maximum award per student is $3000 ($500 maximum for London Program students conducting research in the U.K.), which may be used for travel, living expenses, lodging and the purchase of research and creative materials. Interested students should submit their proposals using the Student Grant Network. Funding for the purchase of computers, cameras, and other electronic equipment will not be provided.

Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis.  Deadline: March 20, 2017.
