Community-based Research Faculty Fellowships

 The Steans Center for Community-based Service Learning will award up to three Community-based Research Faculty Fellowships for the 2018-2019 academic year. Each Fellow receives a $4,000 stipend (in two installments) and a funded research assistant for three academic quarters at a 25% appointment. Additional funds will be provided for each Fellow and research assistant to present their research at an academic conference of their choice.

A fellowship can be proposed by any DePaul University faculty member - tenured, tenure-track, or part-time / full-time contract faculty with ongoing teaching responsibilities. Adjunct instructors are not eligible. Fellowship applications are encouraged from any discipline or academic profession. Past fellowship recipients may apply for a senior fellowship. Dates and criteria for the senior fellowship will be the same as for first-time applicants.

The community-based research project must satisfy the following criteria:

  1. Involve the community (i.e., driven by the interests of a community / community organization in Chicago)
  2. Benefit a community or set of communities in Chicago (i.e., improve the quality of life for residents of a Chicago community)
  3. Draw on the faculty member's expertise
  4. Advance the faculty member's scholarship

The deadline for proposals for the 2018-2019 academic year will be May 10, 2018.
