Terms and Eligibility
Awarded annually on the recommendation of the Director of the School for Studies in Art and Culture to outstanding full-time students who are Indigenous, Black or a member of another racialized group and who are proceeding from one year to another of a degree program within the School for Studies in Art and Culture. Priority will be given to students in the upper years of their programs. Eligible recipients will demonstrate community service or engagement in campus life. Application is required. Established in 2022 by Rawlson King BJ/99, MA/07 and Linda Grussani BA/99, MA/03.
With growing anti-racism and decolonization efforts since 2020 and Carleton’s recognition that we are working on a campus located on unceded Algonquin Anishinaabe territory, we recognize in the School for Studies in Art and Culture that Indigenous, Black and racialized students are typically underrepresented in academia and that they are more likely to be systemically disadvantaged and oppressed by historical and contemporary inequities. Rawlson King and Linda Grussani are establishing this award to honor and support academic excellence among Indigenous, Black and other racialized undergraduate students in the School for Studies in Art and Culture.
