The Community-based Research Fellows Program provides small grants and professional development for faculty/student research teams.
October 7, 2020
Are you a faculty member conducting research in conjunction with a community partner? Are you working with a student research assistant? If so, you may qualify for the Community-based Research Fellows Program (CBRF).
The CBRF provides small grants and professional development for faculty/student research teams. The grant comprises a stipend to pay student research assistants and a small amount of funding for research supplies. It also provides professional-development opportunities for student researchers to meet with peers to discuss their research at various stages in the process, not just at a conference at the end.
- All faculty levels are eligible
- All disciplines are eligible
- Research must be conducted in conjunction with a community partner
- Student research assistant(s) must be part of the team
Although many research activities have been shut down during the pandemic, others have ramped up. It may be that you are doing research related to COVID-19 testing or social-justice activities or how the economy is affecting small businesses. Previous fellows have conducted research on maker spaces, after-school programs and water contamination in local creeks. Community partnerships have been as diverse as Denver Water, the Westwood neighborhood and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Denver.
