This opportunity is open to all Penn State junior or mid-level faculty who want to advance their practice of community-engaged research. Community-engaged research is the active involvement and participation of community stakeholders. The degree of community involvement in research is determined beforehand and falls on a continuum of possibilities from collaborating fully in all aspects of research to being involved in a targeted part of the research study.
This fellowship provides mentoring and research experience to develop new competency in community engaged research for junior or mid-level faculty who want to bring this type of research into their own programs. The fellowship may serve:
- researchers already engaged in time- and resource-demanding community engaged research
- early career researchers and advanced trainees desiring hands-on experience and mentoring in the science and practice of community engaged research
In addition to being mentored and gaining research experience, fellows will participate in the Community Engaged Research Core Faculty for Clinical and Translational Science Institute, attending meetings and working with the faculty leads on core’s activities and consultations.
Applications are due March 28, 2018. Learn more about the program here.
