AAPI Experience Grant Announcement
We are excited to announce the launch of the AAPI Experience Grant, an initiative to support student projects that highlight the voices and experiences of Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities in North America.
Oberlin Shansi, in conjunction with the Multicultural Resource Center, Comparative American Studies, and As I Am, will provide awards of up to $300 for academic, artistic, and community engaged projects that engage the stories, arts, activisms, and histories of Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities. The grant committee also encourages work that explores solidarities and collaborations between AAPI communities and Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and queer communities in North America.
Grantees will be expected to present their work for the Oberlin and Shansi Communities. Shansi staff will also work with grantees to explore wider dissemination of their work. Projects can take a number of formats, including, but not limited to, academic papers, creative writing, zines and graphic novels, performance pieces, paintings, sculptures, essays, podcasts, and short films.
Applications for the first cycle of AAPI Experience Grants will be due on June 15th.
Please see our website for more details and to access the application form.
Shansi is also committed to continue providing financial and logistical support for on-campus events and publications that support anti-racism and address experiences of Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander Communities.
