Community Engagement and Undergraduate Research: Leveraging Fellowships for Community-Engaged Research
October 10 @ 11:15 am - 12:30 pm
Join the Carolina Center for Public Service and recipients of the MacDonald Fellowship for a lunch and conversation about models for integrating community engagement and undergraduate research, specifically with funding and support through project-based fellowships like the APPLES Bryan Fellowship (applications due Oct. 23) and the MacDonald Fellowship (applications due in April 2024).
Our guests will include Cate Schultz and Alyssa Cooper, both students who received MacDonald Fellowship to support projects deeply connected to their research. Schultz is currently a senior studying both human development and family science and psychology with a minor in conflict management who completed a project titled “Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham & Orange Counties Outdoor Education and Recreation Program.” Read more about her work here and here. Cooper is a first-year master of public health student who studied anthropology as an undergraduate at Carolina and completed a project titled, “縁Power – Empowering Newly Parenting Japanese Families in The Triangle.” Read more about her work here. Examples of other fellowship projects are available here and here.
Note: attendance at this workshop does not count toward the required workshops for the CRSP designation.
