The Feminist Research Institute is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2018-2019 Seed Grants. The diverse group of project leaders come from more than 10 different UC Davis departments, institutes, and programs across campus.

Seed Grants

The FRI Seed Grant Competition invites proposals from UC Davis faculty for collaborative projects that use feminist approaches to engage in transformative, trans-disciplinary research.

Proposals are encouraged that involve collaboration with faculty from more than one college/school.
