Barbara was active in many parts of CRIAW's life, notably the Global Feminisms Committee and the Publications Committee. In honour of her "commitment and contribution to Women's Studies, her radical clarity and active work for, and celebration of justice, peace and community", her colleagues at CRIAW have established a memorial scholarship which is managed by CRIAW.

The Barbara Roberts Memorial Fund was established with the primary objective of continuing, promoting, and supporting work in peace issues, workplace/unions/radical social movements, social justice/human rights and women’s studies education from a feminist perspective. The Fund is administered by the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women (CRIAW) in Ottawa, Canada. 

This award constitutes of one grant of $2,000. Each project will be evaluated by members of a special jury, whose decisions will be final.  No individual critiques can be provided.  If no submissions meet the jury's requirements, the grant money will be returned to the Fund. 

This grant is for action-based research projects on one of the four themes indicated above. CRIAW will fund the whole project or parts or stages of a project. The funds are meant to provide access to research funding to those who normally would have difficulty obtaining research funds.  The research must make a significant contribution to feminist research and be non-sexist, non-racist and non-homophobic in its methodology and language.
