Announcing the 2021 Rackham Public Scholarship Grants

The Rackham Program in Public Scholarship supports publicly engaged scholarship through mutually beneficial projects created between Rackham students and community partners that co-create public goods based on community-needs and interests.

Time Travel with Typewriters

With support from the Rackham Program in Public Scholarship, Rackham alumna Meghan Forbes created a program that uses a retro strategy to encourage children to write: giving them access to typewriters.

Mining the Past

With support from the Rackham Program in Public Scholarship, anthropology alumnus Colin Quinn helped start a program that connects a Romanian community with its mining heritage.

Tribal radio stations are important sources of healthcare information in Native American communities, which have been particularly hard hit by COVID-19. Ph.D. alumna Jana Wilbricht studied this crucial role, and helped two stations better reach their audiences.
