The BRIDGE initiative (Building Research on Inequality and Diversity to Grow Equity) at Rice University is seeking to support new projects aiming to explore inequalities as they relate to the novel coronavirus pandemic, which includes the impact of the viral spread as well as experiences and changing well-being linked to increased social distancing (e.g. school closures, business shutdowns).
The Bridge initiative (Building Research on Inequality and Diversity to Grow Equity) at Rice University seeks to further: 1) knowledge of the patterns, causes, consequences, and experience of inequality; 2) dialogue and action with respect to inequality on campus and in the Houston area; and 3) the training of future scholars of inequality. The initiative provides seed funding to support research endeavors that explore inequality within the racially and ethnically diverse environment of Houston and the broader Gulf Coast Region.
The Bridge initiative (Building Research on Inequality and Diversity to Grow Equity) at Rice University seeks to further: 1) knowledge of the patterns, causes, consequences, and experience of inequality; 2) dialogue and action with respect to inequality within and beyond the university; and 3) the training of future scholars of inequality. To promote and support engagement with external scholars, practitioners, and professionals that enrich ongoing or potential projects that contribute to the initiative’s vision, we invite applications from the Rice University community for funding to support visitors to Rice during the 2020-2021 academic year.
