RESEARCH WITH AND ABOUT COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT GRANT

The Indiana Campus Compact Research With and About Community Engagement grant supports original research aimed at empirically exploring community engagement initiatives and organizational change at institutions of higher education in Indiana or the effect community engagement has on students’ success during or after college.

The Indiana Campus Compact Research With and About Community Engagement seeks to fund two types of research projects:

Original research that is in partnership with community organizations or community members and is focused on topics, issues, or questions that arise from the community (partnering organization or community at large) and because the community has determined it is important, relevant, or timely.
Original research that is about the impact of community engagement on organization change at the institution—both higher education and/or community organization institutions—and the impact this has on the institution’s stakeholders.

Funding Award: $5,000        Required Institutional Match: $1,500

Who Should Apply

Partnerships made up of any combination of Campus Stakeholders (Faculty, Campus Administrators, Institutional Researchers, and Graduate Students) along with Community Representatives who are looking to examine topics arising from the communities and that are important to the community.
