Race and Sexuality Research Award

You can make a difference

Donations will be used to fund the Race and Sexuality Research Award.


We welcome  projects from varied research approaches, disciplines, and methodologies that connect facets of sexuality to Asian, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other POC communities. Projects can be in any stage of the process to qualify.


In the wake of the recent shootings at Atlanta spas, we would especially welcome proposals that speak to related issues of anti-Asian hate, Asian fetishization, sex-negativity, and hatred and violence against sex workers. We are also particularly interested in proposals that connect race and sexuality to other pressing social issues, such as tightening abortion restrictions, anti-trans sports legislation, police brutality and incarceration, immigration issues, and disparate effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Award Submission Criteria

A brief (3 page maximum) proposal is required explaining the proposed research, a timeframe for its completion, and how it relates to one or more of the 8 Dimensions of Positive Sexuality. Applicants must also submit a proposed budget and a resume or curriculum vitae.

Proposals are evaluated by the Board of Directors based on the following criteria: 1) quality and feasibility of work proposed 2) centrality of research on communities of color 3) connection of research to one or more of the Dimensions of Positive Sexuality and 4) potential for impact on communities of color.

Who Can Apply?
Proposals are welcomed from researchers at any level, including community members unaffiliated with academic institutions, and anyone can apply. We welcome submissions from new researchers without a publication record. Researchers from marginalized communities are especially encouraged to apply.
