Undergraduate Fellowships for Community Engaged Research Available

In partnership with the VCU Office of Research and Innovation, the DCE will fund undergraduate community-engaged research fellowship awards for research projects mentored by VCU faculty and carried out in collaboration with a community partner. The deadline to apply is March 10. 

Proposals for this fellowship should include a community-engaged research project that creates and disseminates knowledge or creative expression with the goal of contributing to the discipline and strengthening the well-being of the community. Successful proposals must discuss how the project will increase the student researcher’s knowledge, skills and experience through a mutually-beneficial partnership in the community.

Each fellowship award includes $1,500 in funding for the student and $500 for the faculty mentor.
