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:
- Involve the community (i.e., driven by the interests of a
community / community organization in Chicago)
- Benefit a community or set of communities in Chicago (i.e.,
improve the quality of life for residents of a Chicago community)
- Draw on the faculty member's expertise
- Advance the faculty member's scholarship
The deadline for proposals for
the 2018-2019 academic year will be May 10, 2018.
