SESP Leadership Institute (SLI) Conference Grant

The Leadership Institute (SLI) Conference Grant provides funding to SLI alums to help offset costs to participate in academic conferences relating to social justice, education, cultural psychology, or related areas. This year we can award up to $500 and hope to provide these funds for current students and recent graduates with interests in research, community work, and/or pursuing graduate studies.

What is the SLI conference grant?
– An opportunity aimed at supporting SLI alum participation in academic conferences and educational gatherings that further individuals’ interests in graduate studies as well as community/educational work.

Who is eligible to receive funding?
– All current students and recent graduates who are past participants of the SLI program will be considered for the grant until we reach $500.

Can more than one person receive funding?
– Yes! We will prioritize current students who are approaching graduation and recent graduates.

What is the deadline?
– While there is no deadline, we encourage you to apply early. Decisions will be sent on a rolling basis.
