Successful applicants may have accomplished one or more of the following:

- Demonstrated long standing commitment to advocating on behalf of underserved communities
- Produced creative/scholarly work that brings awareness to critical issues facing marginalized communities locally or globally
- Conducted research that challenges “normative” disciplinary boundaries
Graduate students, post-docs, and faculty are invited to nominate faculty scholars.
