Asian American Studies has a tradition of community engagement and working towards a more just society. As such, the Intercollegiate Department of Asian American Studies (IDAAS) at the Claremont Colleges established a fellowship program, the Margo Okazawa-Rey Summer Fellowship. The Fellowship is designed to encourage outstanding college students to implement community- based, creative, or research projects that integrate social justice, multi-racial solidarity, and feminism.

IDAAS awards one to two Margo Okazawa-Rey Summer Fellowships each year. The awards are given on a competitive basis for student-initiated, interdisciplinary projects.  Preference given to projects related to decolonizing pedagogies such as STEP, Rise Up, LAMP, or Pomona High School project. The project may be creative, research-oriented, or community-based.
