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 in scope.

Civic Engagement Research Fellowship Program

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.

Applications are now invited for all three research fellowships: the Civic Engagement Research Fellowship that has the broadest scope, and the more narrowly focused Grant Development and Research Dissemination Fellowships. The application deadline for all 2015-16 fellowships is April 6, 2015.

Fellowships are available to full-time UB faculty members.  

Community Scholar-in-Residence Fellowship Program

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. 

Community Scholar-in-Residence Fellowships The application deadline for 2015-16 fellowships is Monday, April 6, 2015.  Guidelines and application forms are available here.
