Welcome to the Restored Warriors Project (RWP)

a transformative initiative that aims to provide individuals with the opportunity to prioritize rest, rejuvenation, and holistic wellbeing. In a world marked by fast-paced work and persistent inequities, it is crucial to draw upon communal resources to nurture the vitality of our communities. The RWP offers Rest Fellowships and a Sabbatical Program, providing financial support and supplemental wellness offerings for selected scholars and community members to create space for restoration.

Rest Fellowships:

These short-term portals for respite  $10,000 to community leaders. The focus is on empowering individuals to structure their time off according to their unique needs and aspirations.

Sabbatical Program:

Designed for those seeking longer periods of rest, the program offers a $25,000 honorarium for individuals interested in a semester-long or multi-month period of reprieve. This initiative recognizes the limitations of traditional sabbaticals, especially for scholars of Color who often have to engage in additional work to sustain themselves. By providing the necessary resources, the RWP aims to support academics in fully embracing their sabbatical and experiencing deep restoration.

To support this endeavor, we are constantly seeking funding. All program administration will be provided in-kind. Selection for each fellowship and sabbatical program will be based on existing relationships with community members who have expressed a need and interest.
