The Civic Engagement and Public Policy research initiative has established two fellowship programs to help advance and support community-based research by members of UB faculty on issues of social justice and public policy.
The Civic Engagement Research Fellowship Program provides three fellowship opportunities for UB faculty members to advance their community-based research and engaged scholarship that address social and policy challenges. Community-based research requires collaboration with an external partner, and will confront issues whose scope ranges from the local to the global.
The fellowship with the broadest scope is the Civic Engagement Research Fellowship, which now requires applications in the spring semester for the following academic year. The two newest fellowships, established in 2012-13, are more narrowly focused -- for Grant Development and for Research Dissemination -- and applications are sought in the fall semester.
All fellowships are available to full-time UB faculty
The Community Scholar-in-Residence Fellowship program provides an opportunity for members of UB faculty to work closely on campus with a community research partner from outside academia. Faculty members submit nominations for a Community Scholar to collaborate on a community-based research project and/or grant activities.
