The Civic Engagement and Public Policy research initiative has
established two fellowship programs with a total of four
fellowships to help advance and support community-based
research by members of UB faculty. These fellowships support
community-based research used to study issues of social justice,
equity, and public policy and the research may be local or global
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.
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
