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 four 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 the new 2015-16 CEPP fellowship, the Gregory J. Dimitriadis Research Mentoring Fellowship, in honor of Greg Dimitriadis, Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy and founding member of the CEPP Faculty Advisory Committee. Available to all UB full-time faculty or faculty teams, this one-year fellowship supports mentoring to further a program of community-based research and scholarship.  Guidelines and application materials are available here.  

The application process for the other three research fellowships is currently underway: the Civic Engagement Research Fellowship that has the broadest scope, and the more narrowly focused Grant Development and Research Dissemination Fellowships. The deadline for submissions was April 6 and decisions will be made early in May 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.
