SHARP is committed to enhancing the presence of Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour in its community, and supporting the progression of BIPOC scholars in their academic/research careers. In order to support training and career development, and in a desire to respond actively to the issues of racism and underrepresentation, SHARP is offering five $1000 grants to support projects by BIPOC scholars.
SHARP’s Director of Awards is delighted to announce that the recipients of the research development grants are:
DeLisa D. Hawkes (University of Tennessee)
Amber Khan (University of Glasgow)
Swati Moitra (Gurudas College, University of Calcutta)
Cindy Nguyen (University of California)
Sara Elizabeth Danielle Celeste Penn (Simon Fraser University)
Congratulations to these excellent scholars, and my thanks to the brilliant judging committee, which considered all the applications.
