In addition to pre-approved research proposals from our existing partners, undergraduates are welcome to submit their own collaborative research proposals. Community-based research (CBR) combines community knowledge and university knowledge to address issues through actionable research. This fellowship is open to undergraduates from all academic disciplines with prior field experience. CBR fellows receive methods training and up to $6,000 for travel, living expenses, and stipend.
