Diversity and Inclusion Grants

Diversity and inclusion grants provide members of the Berklee community with financial support for events, programs, and initiatives that have a strong diversity and inclusion focus. Grants will be disseminated on a rolling basis as funds are available, and they will go to either a sponsoring student organization or to an administrative unit (e.g., a department) at Berklee.

Initiatives funded by these grants must clearly reflect at least one of the following criteria:

  • Educational programming that increases foundational or advanced understanding, knowledge, and skills related to diversity and inclusion concepts for members of the Berklee community
  • Programming and events that support engagement and learning about identity, diversity, and inclusion for members of the Berklee community
  • Community-building programs that support diversity and inclusion goals through the intentional exploration, connection, and fostering of community at Berklee, within and across identities and backgrounds   
  • The creation of resources and materials that support diversity and inclusion engagement and learning for members of the Berklee community
