Scholarship Opportunity for Early-Career Engaged Scholars

The Center for Community-Engaged Teaching and Research (CETR) is happy to announce that we have funding available for up to three individuals to participate in the Campus Compact Engaged Scholars Initiative for the 2021-2022 Cohort. 

The Engaged Scholars Initiative is a one-year leadership program designed to develop a diverse group of early-career faculty and staff who can strengthen their own critical community-engaged scholarship and lead change within their institutions and communities.  The cohort meets virtually over the course of the year with three-four retreats, monthly meetings, mentorship opportunities, scholarly collaborations, etc.

If you choose to apply, please let CETR know.

Gerber Foundation Accepting Concept Papers for Research Grants

Deadline to submit Concept Paper: May 15

The Gerber Foundation’s mission focuses on infants and young children. Accordingly, priority is given to projects that improve the nutrition, care and development of infants and young children from the first year before birth to three years of age. The Foundation is particularly interested in fresh approaches to solving common, everyday problems or emerging issues within our defined focus areas. Projects should focus on issues faced by care providers that, when implemented, will improve the health, nutrition and/or developmental outcomes for infants and young children. The board is particularly looking for practical solutions that can be easily and rapidly implemented on a broad scale with a predictable time frame to clinical application.

The first step to applying is to submit a concept paper, which provides a brief summary of the project, enabling the Foundation to assess how well the proposed research fits with the Foundation’s interests. The concept paper does not include scientific references, biosketches, or CVs. The concept paper should be written in lay terms.
