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

This P2 Fellows program supports and advances community-engaged scholarship among UNCG scholars
and community partners. The program provides funding and professional development opportunities to
teams who are working in a context of reciprocity and mutual benefit to advance knowledge about, and
accelerate activities to address, community-identified priorities. This program is unique in that projects
span three years; the focus is on community-engaged methods, practices, and outcomes; and the funds
support team-based, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary scholarship. In addition, professional
development and networking opportunities are open to all P2 university and community partners.

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

Applications for the 2021 cohort are due October 1, 2021, 5:00 p.m.

Learn more about the grant and how to apply.
