Do you have an amazing idea that will help transform educational access? Are you organizing a cultural celebration on campus? EDI provides grants and co-sponsorships to faculty who would like to implement innovative programs and events that advance the goals of the EDI Office.

Innovation Grants

The EDI Innovation grant is a mechanism designed to pilot innovative projects that advance the UC San Diego strategic plan diversity goals. This program favors proposals that have the potential to advance systemic changes at UC San Diego by exerting a sustained, powerful influence on fostering an inclusive and equitable climate for faculty, staff, and students. EDI will fund up to 10 grants per year ranging from $5000 to $15,000. Co-sponsorship is required.
