To mark the inaugural Nelson Mandela Anti-Racism Week (20th – 24th March 2023), the Office of the Vice President for Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (OVPEDI) annual Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Project Fund (€15,000) will be awarded as several small grants normally ranging from €300 - €1000.

The fund is available to staff and students on a competitive basis for a variety of Anti-Racism projects within the University. Initiatives aligned to an additional ground protected in equality legislation (gender, age, civil status, family status, race/ethnicity, membership of the Traveller community, disability, sexual orientation, and religion/belief) will be prioritised. Collaboration between staff and students (including Societies and Clubs) with community groups/organisations is strongly encouraged.

The call for the 2022/23 Nelson Mandela EDI Project Fund closed on 30th November 2023.
