The Carolina Center for Public Service (CCPS) is accepting applications for the Community Engagement Fellowship program. A maximum of five fellowships of up to $2,000 each are awarded in the spring to develop and implement engagement or engaged scholarship projects that employ innovative, sustainable approaches to complex social needs and have an academic connection.
Fellows work in collaboration with community partners and faculty mentors who are familiar with the identified topics or geographic areas, while fellows are responsible for the major planning and implementation of their projects. The fellowships run from March-October with seminar participation in the spring and fall and project implementation for most teams during the summer. Based on successful progress and needs, teams may be eligible to apply for a second year of funding.
Returning, full-time graduate students (individuals or teams) at UNC-Chapel Hill are eligible to apply with preference given to interdisciplinary teams of students. Apply online through the CCPS Application and Nomination Portal by 11:59 p.m. Feb. 3.
