Grants supporting community-based research teams

The Office of Leadership and Service-Learning, the Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creativity Office and The Graduate School will offer grants supporting community-based research teams of faculty and students. The community-based research (CBR) initiation grant supports proposals that represent collaborative partnerships among community partner, student and faculty teams. Projects should advance the development of community partner capacity, advance student learning through the high impact practice of undergraduate research, and facilitate the evolution of faculty scholarly identity as it relates to community-identified needs.

The goal of this community-based research grant is to support the agenda of each team member while simultaneously grounding the process in mutual development of all three entities. We seek projects that demonstrate community-engagement, as defined as “activities that are undertaken with community members in a context of reciprocal partnership.”

This year, the undergraduate funding component will be routed through URSCO, please complete the URCA application first, as it is due April 13, 2014: http://our.uncg.edu/funding/URCA.php
