The deadline for receipt of applications is Thursday, March 31, 2011. Successful applicants will be notified no later than April 22, 2011.
Applicants for this program should be graduate students or junior faculty members:
· With an interest in community engagement and engaged scholarship and/or the scholarship of engagement (that is, involved or interested in research that contributes to their discipline while making a positive impact on external stakeholders), or
· whose research is about engagement (that is, interested in the processes and outcomes of community engagement and engaged scholarship)
Applicants must also demonstrate:
· A desire for new learning about engagement and engaged scholarship,
· An interest in working with faculty across disciplines to explore and learn more about how engaged scholarship might be carried out, and
· The capacity to effectively communicate the results of their research to public, academic, and other external audiences.
· Successful applicants will be expected to come to the workshop with an idea for an engaged scholarship project, or a research project about the scholarship of engagement, in mind. These projects will be discussed in the context of what is presented during the workshop. Participants are expected to attend all sessions and participate fully in activities of the program.
