Urban Institute Equity Scholars Program

 May 29, 2021

 

 

Urban Institute Equity Scholars The Urban Institute is kicking off a new effort to grow the field of researchers building evidence to accelerate racial justice and strengthen equity across society. Our Equity Scholars program offers emerging and established scholars the opportunity to deepen their own policy-oriented research on race, equity, and/or structural racism while contributing to equity-focused analyses underway at Urban. Over two years, as members of a cohort, Equity Scholars will develop research to interrogate the effects of structural racism on people and places, develop evidence-based solutions to advance racial equity, and share their insights to decisionmakers best positioned to act. Interested in being a part of this inaugural group of scholars? Apply today to the Urban Institute Equity Scholars program, launching January 2022 (https://urban.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/en-US/Urban-Ca ..
