The Relationship Building and Research & Implementation Grant applications are open.
The Creating Whole Communities Research Fellows program offers two types of grants to support UMSL faculty and doctoral students partnering with community to address important place-based challenges through rigorous issue- and practice-based research.
- Relationship Building Grant
This grant initiative seeks to support University-community partnerships in the exploration process of mutual interests and shared goals with the aim that this will lead to a trustworthy partnership, long-term collaboration, and achievement of community-desired goals. A partnership with local organizations and/or leaders is a required component of this grant application. Up to $1,000 will be awarded to partnerships.
- Research and Implementation Grant
This grant initiative seeks to support faculty research that implements a philosophy of Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) and address issues that are critical to local neighborhoods and municipalities.
