The UB 2020 Civic Engagement and Public Policy Research Initiative (CEPP) has expanded its faculty research fellowship offerings for the 2012-13 academic year, providing awards to eight faculty members for two new fellowships.
These new research fellowships are being offered in response to the need expressed by faculty for additional support for their external grant activities and to develop their ability to disseminate research results, according to Susan Mangold, professor of law and co-chair of CEPP’s Faculty Advisory Committee.
CEPP is in its fourth year supporting community-based research. The fellows are UB researchers who collaborate with community partners to address urgent and challenging concerns of social justice and public policy. The projects range in scope from local to international.
“We learned that the grant development and dissemination phases of community-based research were particularly challenging,” Mangold says. “As a result, the Faculty Advisory Committee of CEPP decided to focus new fellowships on those particular phases of research.”
Laura Mangan, CEPP coordinator, says that for 2012-13, three different research fellowships were awarded to faculty members from 10 departments across seven schools and the College of Arts and Sciences.
The new Civic Engagement Research Fellowships for Grant Development and Research Dissemination will provide fellows and their partners with up to $3,500 for their community-based research project.
