2020 CALL FOR PROPOSALS

AWARD DESCRIPTION

The Harlan Hahn Endowment Fund was established by a generous gift to the University of Washington’s Disability Studies Program from the late Harlan D. Hahn, disability activist, political scientist, and disability studies scholar.

2020 CALL FOR PROPOSALS

The Harlan Hahn Fund call for proposals is now open for 2020. Current students, faculty, and staff from all three University of Washington campuses are invited to submit a grant proposal. Applications must describe research, writing, or activist projects that are framed within, aligned with, or informed by the academic field of Disability Studies. Harlan Hahn awards typically range between $500 and $5,000.
