Community Engagement Grant Program
The Community Engagement Grant Program, housed within the Center for Public Scholarship & Social Change, is an internal grant program for faculty that aims to support costs (supplies, equipment, student wages, etc.) associated with one of the following
- community-based research projects: collaborative inquiry between faculty and community members to identify, research, and solve community problems
- community impact projects: projects where faculty and community members work together to address problems and needs in the community
Priority funding will be given to those conducting polling/survey research and to those address political, social, or economic issues in Lancaster County. Collaborative faculty-student projects are encouraged.
