    Graduate Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice Scholarship

    The Graduate Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice (DEIJ) scholarship seeks to acknowledge the important contributions of our graduate students in promoting and contributing to DEIJ within one’s program, the campus community, and in their future work and professional endeavors.

    The Graduate DEIJ Scholarship is a $2,000 scholarship renewable for one year. Admitted graduate students interested in applying for the Graduate DEIJ Scholarship must apply and be accepted for admission to their program of interest, complete the below scholarship form and include a Diversity Statement.

    We are currently accepting scholarship applications from graduate students accepted to the Spring, Summer or Fall 2023 entry terms. All accepted graduate students are welcome to apply.

    Scholarship awardees must enroll in their program of interest to receive the scholarship. Scholarship deferral requests will not be honored. Please note this Graduate DEIJ Scholarship cannot be combined with the Hawk Alumni Scholarship.

    In a 1000-word short essay, describe how you will contribute to and promote DEIJ as a graduate student at the University of Hartford and within your field of interest. It is important that you demonstrate knowledge of DEIJ based on literature/theory, personal experience, previous academic/co-curricular experiences, and/or previous professional work, discuss future research, scholarship, and other activities you plan to partake in that will contribute to and promote DEIJ on campus, and comment on the importance of DEIJ in your chosen field of study as well as its importance in your future professional practice/employment.
