Research and Global Change Description

The Global Change Program, established in 2023, is a grant initiative meant to help individuals throughout the world who are leading projects or campaigns that advance our goal by putting assembly at the heart of efforts to make society more just and equitable.

Climate change, education access, interstate warfare, public health problems, and data openness are just a few of the significant concerns that communities worldwide face. Incite’s Global Change Program assists activists, scholars, organizers, artists, and others working in communities most directly affected by such concerns. GCP assists leaders in these communities in leading initiatives that apply innovative, knowledge-based solutions—derived from academic research and/or personal or community experience—to a specific situation.

GCP recipients receive financial support ranging from $10,000 to $25,000.Furthermore, Incite promises to promote GCP projects through its own network of professors, researchers, and activists. Awardees will remain in the field during the award year while receiving intellectual assistance from Incite, such as facilitated cooperation with a center or institute of their choice at Columbia University.

In 2023, a GCP pilot grant sponsored Allison Benson-Hernandez of Re-Imagenemos, an initiative that is promoting the country’s first national-level discussion about inequality through a series of community forums across Colombia. Hundreds of people from various social origins and professional perspectives collaborated during these sessions to develop an agenda of community-led activities to address inequality.
