Community-Engaged Research Grant Guidelines for Requesting Seed Funds

To encourage the development of community-engaged research projects and sustainable community-engaged research agendas, funding of up to $10,000 per year may be requested for a maximum of two years. The expectation of the grant is that after two years, external funding will be acquired to sustain and develop the project into an agenda that has significant impact in the local context. A maximum of $20,000 will be awarded per year.

The Community-Engaged Research Grants competition is open to teams that include full-time Duquesne faculty and members of established community-based organizations, schools, governmental or social sector entities (at the local or regional level). Multi- and interdisciplinary are encouraged. Application Deadline: August 1, 2022


The Center for Community-Engaged Teaching & Research Racial Equity Grant Proposal

The Center for Community Engaged Teaching and Research (CETR) invites you to submit an application for the Racial Justice Grant. This grant is designed to support the efforts of a Duquesne faculty person as well as a Duquesne student in supporting the proactive reinforcement of policies, practices, programs, attitudes, and/or actions that produce
equitable power, access, opportunities, treatment, impacts, and outcomes for Black, Indigenous and People of Color in the Pittsburgh region. Application Deadline: August 31, 2022


Partnership/Project Support Mini-Grants

Implementing community-engaged teaching and research projects often requires additional resources and support. CETR is happy to assist our faculty and students purchase materials, food supplies, secure transportation, etc. Our operating budget is modest, and so we seek to pair our support with departmental and school support. Mini-grants can range from $50-$1000.

NOSI – Developing and Testing Multilevel Physical Activity Interventions to Improve Health and Well-Being

The Office of Disease Prevention and participating ICOs are issuing this Notice to highlight our interest in encouraging highly innovative and promising translational research to improve our understanding of how to increase and maintain health-enhancing physical activity using multi-level interventions in a wide range of population groups across the lifespan (e.g., including racial and ethnic minorities, children, older adults, persons with medical/behavioral health conditions, and persons with disabilities). This includes efficacy, effectiveness and dissemination and implementation studies. It also includes support for pilot, exploratory, or developmental work in preparation for full-scale, fully powered efficacy studies, preliminary feasibility studies, as well as expanded feasibility work for a discrete, specified, circumscribed project that is based on well-established theory, existing data and evidence-based interventions.
