Fondren announces new Reginald Moore Travel Grant for Research in Activism and Social Justice

Reginald Moore Travel Grant

On June 19, 2020, the School of Humanities and Fondren Library at Rice  
University were pleased to announce the creation of three new funding  
opportunities.

The Reginald Moore Internship in Activism and Social Justice supports  
a Rice undergraduate student in the humanities doing work with a  
community organization related to these subjects.

The Reginald Moore Internship in Public Humanities supports a Rice  
graduate student in the humanities working with a community  
organization to bring humanities scholarship and research to audiences  
beyond the academy.

The Reginald Moore Travel Grant for Research in Activism and Social  
Justice is an annual travel grant to support researchers traveling to  
the Woodson Research Center to work on these subjects.  Researchers  
are welcome regardless of academic status. Projects typically include  
historical research in support of papers, exhibits, creative writing,  
documentaries, dissertations, journalism, or similar creative  
ventures. Funds may be used to cover the cost of travel (such as  
airfare, mileage, parking), lodging, and meals. Applicants should live  
further than 50 miles from Rice University and should not be current  
Rice University students or employees.

All three awards are named in honor of Reginald Moore, longtime  
Houston-area activist and nationally recognized founder of the Convict  
Leasing and Labor Project, a non-profit organization whose mission is  
to unearth the history of the convict leasing system and raise  
awareness about its legacies today.
