RaceB4Race travel awards

RaceB4Race is an ongoing conference series that brings together scholars of color working on issues of race in premodern literature, history and culture. For the upcoming Rising: A RaceB4Race Symposium, we are offering funds to help defray the costs of traveling to and participating in the symposium. All students and scholars regardless of career status or financial circumstances are eligible to apply.

This year, we are able to offer additional awards in honor of Jean E. Howard thanks to the participants of the 2023 RaceB4Race Second Book Institute. 


Any student or scholar not employed by ASU is eligible to apply for a RaceB4Race Travel Award.
