INCITE is requesting applications for the next installments in our INCITEment Series. Designed to convert knowledge into action, this series provides financial and administrative support to public programs that incite opportunities for change and pathways for mobilization. By gathering together citizens, scholars, activists, and community organizations, the series aims to bring their collective knowledge to bear on the prevalent issues of our time.
We welcome proposals from Columbia affiliates (faculty, students, staff, or otherwise) who can speak to and are interested in key social problems and innovative means of addressing them. While open to a diversity of topics, we are especially interested in proposals that reflect the salient themes of INCITE's work, such as migration, low-wage work, social movements, health, race, the present political climate, and education.
We encourage creativity and originality, and welcome ideas that experiment with various formats. Past programs include panels, workshops, poetry readings, and documentary screenings. Most important is that the projects produce clear paths for action, and leverage the expertise and capabilities of the scholars, citizens, and institutional resources in the room toward practical work in alignment with INCITE’s mission.

Proposals for the 2019-2020 academic year are due on June 1st. Decisions will be made quickly and announced on June 15th. Click below to access the full RFA and apply.
