The campus' Community-Academic Scholars Program is entering its fourth year. Changes to the application process yielded their largest and most diverse cohort of undergraduate scholars last year. The program is currently seeking project submissions to ensure they can offer these students equally exciting opportunities for Summer 2022.
Project submissions are due by January 6, 2022.
Faculty and staff in nearly every college, school, and research unit are working to solve problems related to health, poverty, and social inequity. We are seeking researchers who are collaborating with a community organization and who are interested in involving an undergraduate who may have a personal connection to or a passion for the issues being addressed by their research.
Do you conduct community-based research? The Community-Academic Scholars Program supports faculty and staff conducting community-engaged research with project matching, training, support and a $4,000 stipend for an undergraduate research assistant. Prof. Kevin Tan recently shared his experience and advice at a recorded info session. Details and FAQs are also available on the academic mentor web page.
