Augsburg University’s students are invited to submit a Batalden student grant proposal to support student leadership in applied intersectional ethics on campus and/or in the local community. This student grant program defines applied ethics as work that focuses on, considers, and/or addresses public and/or private moral issues. The overarching objective of this grant is to support student work in intersectional applied ethics that promote social justice and social change. Grant funding for all student proposals is generously supported by Paul ’63 and LaVonne (Olson) Batalden ’63, and Stephen ’67 and Sandra Batalden.
Applied intersectional ethics: Intersectionality is a concept that emerged out of critical race and legal scholarship. This student grant supports work that explicitly addresses intersectionality and ethics. Student proposals should address how interdependent structures and systems of discrimination that perpetuate oppression are ethical issues.
Grant amount: Student proposals may request up to $3000 for the proposed work (including up to $1000 Augsburg student stipends — the proposal should include rationale for the stipend amount requested). Note: Proposals requesting more than $3000 must provide compelling rationale (along with a detailed budget) for the financial request. All funds must be used before May 31, 2021.
Eligibility: Augsburg student (undergraduate, graduate and/or alum). A staff or faculty advisors is required. *Note: Student proposals may include community members outside of Augsburg University, but non-Augsburg affiliated students are not eligible for stipends.
Priority deadline: January 22, 2021 (before midnight)
Proposal submission: To submit a student grant proposal, please complete a proposal application (using Google forms, see link below).
Questions: Contact Prof. Bibiana Koh (firstname.lastname@example.org), Batalden Scholar in Applied Ethics, for inquiries about this student grant opportunity.
