About the program
The mentored Community-Engaged Faculty Fellowship Program provides funding for a Penn State faculty member for up to a total of two course buyouts (one per semester) or .10 FTE of clinical time over the course of one year for study and training in community-engaged research with the guidance and support of a mentor, identified by the fellow, who has agreed to provide mentoring.
The fellowship is for
- researchers already engaged in time- and resource-demanding community-engaged research; or
- 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 be part of the Community-Engaged Research Core team, which involves attending monthly meetings, and working with the team on activities and consultations as part of the experience.
A junior or mid-level faculty member or established research scientist at any Penn State campus is eligible to apply.
Applications are accepted in the last quarter of the calendar year, and a link to apply will be posted here when applications open. The opportunity to apply will also be promoted as a news story on the institute’s home page and on other websites.
