George and Sakaye Aratani Community Advancement Research Endowment (C.A.R.E.) and UCLA Asian American Studies Center
Grants averaging up to $5,000 to California nonprofit organizations and individuals for projects that advance and benefit Japanese American communities. Priority will be shown to projects that promote ties between the Japanese American community and UCLA staff, faculty, and students.
The George and Sakaye Aratani “Community Advancement Research Endowment,” or Aratani C.A.R.E., Awards program seeks proposals that will have a positive impact on and outcome for the Japanese American community, and that will involve members of the UCLA community who are supportive of JA culture and culture building. This can include events, panels, and symposia on the UCLA campus. Awards that are well-conceptualized, that have a viable methodology, and a time-frame that can be carried out within a year’s time, will be prioritized.
Awards will be considered in a wide range of areas, including most of the traditional arts, social sciences, humanities, and planning/policy areas. Possible application topics could entail educational workshops or conferences on or off the UCLA campus but again must demonstrably heighten JA community and UCLA campus ties; data collection on social issues/social needs; forums to promote creative writing; outreach to marginalized sectors of the community; innovative multi-disciplinary collaborations; archives building and organization; digitization of significant collections; publication of brochures or handbooks; projects related to Japanese newcomers; JA women; LGBT issues; leadership and youth development initiatives; etc.
Funds may be used for direct project costs such as project materials, (limited) domestic mileage, printing and photocopying, informational community forums, data collection, database development, data management, and transcription costs.
