Grants

Funded by the ACLS: American Council of Learned Societies

External grants have helped us develop the Crow web interface and share our approaches to equitable, sustainable collaboration with other research teams.

Grant writing is valuable to the Crow team not only because it provides us with the ability to focus on our research and outreach, but because it helps our student researchers develop valuable skills, experience, and knowledge.

We are grateful to the funders who have supported our work.
