Community-Engaged Pathways and Partnerships (P2) Grants:
A Collective Scholarship Fellows Program

Community-Engaged Pathways and Partnerships (P2) is a grant-funded fellows program that aims to strengthen collective approaches to community-engaged scholarship through the development of sustainable pathways and partnerships that build deep, reciprocal processes to achieve mutually beneficial, community identified priorities. Scholarship is broadly defined to include research, creative activity, inquiry, and teaching. This scholarship fellows program is unique in that spans three years, centers community-engaged practices and outcomes, supports team-based scholarship, and provides professional development to P2 Fellows.

Teams are eligible for three consecutive years of funding up to $16,000.

Applications for the 2021 cohort will open late spring and are due mid-October.
