Request for Proposals

The Community Engagement Research Academy (CERA) is pleased to announce a third round of Small Grants focused on community-based learning and research.

The Office of the Provost, the Dean of Urban and Public Affairs, and the Dean of the College of Education have provided a total of $30,000 to support a limited number of proposals for funding up to $5,000 each. The proposals should focus upon key questions that address the practice and impact of community engagement in its many forms. The project must be led by a member of the Portland State University faculty. The research team may include other individuals who can contribute to the work, including graduate students, professional staff, undergraduates or community members.

The deadline for proposal applications is November 20, 2020. Awards are anticipated by early in this winter term and projects should be completed by the end of winter term 2022. Applications must be submitted online; requirements can be found on the application form itself and can also be found as an easily printable document online

In this round, our emphasis will be on the practice of engagement as the pandemic continues to unfold and as its impacts become clear.

We wish to focus on ways to conduct meaningful community-based learning (CBL) and community-based research primarily or exclusively remotely and how these conditions affect the questions that can be addressed, the kinds of collaboration that are possible and the impact of community engagement. Special consideration will be given to proposals that address issues created by the pandemic and that seek equitable participation in the project by campus and community members. 

Please share as you see fit! Questions can be directed to me.  

Regards,
Judith Ramaley
