Community-Engaged Research Grant Application

Community-Engaged Research Grants support material costs related to promising research projects undertaken by Bates students in collaboration with local or statewide community partners. Community-engaged research (CER) combines collaborative inquiry, critical analysis, and social contribution/action. Its questions and methods are determined in consultation with community, and its results are shared in ways that optimize its usefulness to community. CER research grants are competitive, are granted without regard to financial need, and are available to students in all disciplines and classes, with preference given to projects likely to produce the most community benefit. Funding up to $500 for qualified projects is available. Applications are reviewed every two weeks. Questions should be directed to Dr. Darby Ray at the Harward Center.
