LOS ANGELES — The University of California, Los Angeles’ Asian American Studies Center is pleased to announce that the 2014 George an Sakaye Aratani CARE grant applications will be accepted for review between Oct. 24 and Dec. 12. Awards will be announced during the winter quarter, 2015, and should be completed within a year or less.
The Aratani “Community Advancement Research Endowment,” or Aratani CARE, grants are designed to promote projects that will (1) benefit and advance the Japanese American community, as well as (2) strengthen ties between the Japanese American community and UCLA students, staff and faculty.
Applications that include a campus partner (e.g., faculty, staff, students or alumnae) will be prioritized, as will events or programs where the grantee agrees to acknowledge the Aratani CARE grant, UCLA’s Asian American Studies Center as a co-sponsor on public relations and programs.
Nonprofit organizations and qualified individuals are invited to apply for grants that generally range from, but are not limited to, $1,000-$5,000. Past awardees include the Little Tokyo Historical Society, Kizuna, the Japanese Community Cultural Center; the UCLA Nikkei Student Union; and the PSW chapter of the JACL.
Information about the grant and how to apply is available on the Aratani CARE website at www.aratanicare.org.
