Engaged Research Grants incentivize undergraduate participation in faculty- and staff-led research that strengthens the well-being of communities. Community-engaged research occurs in collaboration with a community partner who is involved throughout the research process. It also
  • addresses a specific need, problem or common concern of that partner
  • includes documented critical reflection for undergraduates involved in the research

The Engaged Research Grants are new in 2020. They combine what was previously known as the Faculty Research Grants on Engagement and the Engaged Undergraduate Research Grants. For more information, see the Engaged Research Grants (right click to open in new tab) page on the Engaged Cornell website.
