Submit your projects for the 2023 Community-Academic Scholars Program. This campus-wide program benefits faculty and researchers with community-academic research collaborations by matching them with U of I undergraduate research assistants. If you conduct community-engaged research in partnership with a community organization that addresses issues related to health, poverty, or social inequity, please consider applying. Applications are due January 8, 2023 by 11:59 p.m. CT.
For insights into the researcher experience, please see our discussion with Kevin Tan, a professor of social work who has been an academic mentor with the program since its inception. Several academic and community mentors also offer their thoughts and reflections following the 2022 summer program.
Learn more and submit your project by Jan. 8.
