Civic Engagement, Engaged Scholarship
Engaged Research Fund 2021-2022The OSUN Engaged Research Fund, hosted by the OSUN Civic Engagement Initiative, invites applications for funding and research support for graduate students and faculty at OSUN partner institutions who are working to develop long-term, sustainable community partnerships as a central part of their research with a goal to develop shared knowledge about issues that align with OSUN priorities and themes.
The Engaged Scholar Award (ESA) is for graduate students pursuing research that integrates community engagement into new or existing scholarship.
The Engaged Faculty Scholar Award (EFSA) is for faculty whose scholarship incorporates community-based research into new or existing research and supports sustained community partners as long-term collaborators.
Examples of past funded Engaged Research Fund Projects:
-Assessing the needs of the LGBT refugee community in South Africa
-Community partnerships and dementia care in Bulgaria
