Call for Proposals: Health Equity-Focused, Community-Engaged Research Fellowship

Co-Sponsored by the Center for Community Health Equity (CCHE) and the Irwin W. Steans Center for Community-Based Service Learning.

CCHE and The Steans Center request support for health equity research that engages a community partner in identifying solution-focused strategies to health inequities. This program, co-sponsored by the CCHE and the Steans Center, will award one faculty fellowship to a mid-career DePaul faculty member (at the assistant or associate level) who is interested in developing health-focused and community-engaged scholarship. The faculty fellow will be supported by The Faculty Scholarship Collaborative (FSC), will receive a $4,000 stipend (provided in three installments) and a funded research assistant for three academic quarters. Community partners will also receive a $1,000 stipend as a collaborator in the research process.

Proposed research/scholarly projects must:

    1. Be driven by, and defined through collaboration with, a non-university, community-based partner(s)
    2. Involve issues of community health and health equity, broadly defined
    3. Benefit a community or set of communities (i.e., improve the quality of life for residents and contribute to the assets of Chicago area communities)
    4. Advance the faculty member’s scholarship and long-term research agenda
    5. Support development of students’ research skills

Proposals Due: March 15, 2021
Fellowship Timeline: July 2021 to December 2022
