The Institute's Research Grant Award program awards two graduate student grants (typically $1,000) and one undergraduate grant (typically $500) to support students engaged in research or creative projects that address the issue of hate. Topics may include examining hate in any of its manifestations including but not limited to racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, ethnoviolence and terrorism; methods of challenging it; how hate is maintained and perpetuated through culture, organizations, policies, politics, media or discourse.
