Humanities Against Racism Fund

Hershey Humanities Against Racism Fund

The Hershey Humanities Against Racism Fund will support anti-racist humanities education at Penn through small grants. We are particularly keen to support projects that work to build long-term partnerships between the university and the diverse community of Philadelphia beyond campus. We know that such education can take an infinite variety of forms, including but not restricted to reading groups, visiting speakers, performances, exhibitions, and scholarly projects. Although it is possible that we will award a larger grant, grants awarded will generally be $1500 or less. 


TO APPLY, please email the following information, saving your document as a single PDF and naming it your Last name_First name.pdf (Franklin_Ben.pdf): 

  • applicant name, title, email
  • 50-500 word description of project
  • budget (including details of any co-sponsorship commitments or applications in process)
  • list of participants
  • 100-word bio of project organizer(s)

We request that grantees please recognize the support of the Wolf Humanities Center in any promotional material. The Wolf Humaniites Center is also available to help promote grantees' projects on our website and social media channels.
