Alumni Racial Equity and Interfaith Cooperation Awards

The Racial Equity & Interfaith Alumni Award aims to support IFYC Alumni in creating experiences and opportunities that build bridges across lines of religious, spiritual, and secular differences while simultaneously seeking racial justice. The $1000 awards are intended to fund both programmatic expenses of the initiative (supplies, stipends to partners, equipment, etc.) and self-compensation for the time and energy an Awardee gives to a project (up to $500 of the award).  Through these awards we are eager to elevate the voices of Black leaders and other leaders of Color.   We expect the funded program, training, workshop, or initiative will be implemented between November 15, 2021 and April 15, 2022. 
 
Application Requirements: All applicants must complete an online application by Thursday, October 28, 2021. Successful applicants will be notified on November 15th, 2021.  The application asks for the following information:

Use of Award Funds: The funds are intended to support both the implementation of the initiative (supplies, stipends, equipment, etc.) and self-compensation for the time and energy an Awardee gives to a project (up to $500 of the award).  Awardees will be notified by October 15, 2021.
