Chancellor’s Award for Community-Engaged Scholars
With strategic funding from the Chancellor’s Office, the Faculty Advisory Committee of the Center for Community Engagement is pleased to announce the 3rd annual Chancellor’s Award for Community-Engaged Scholars. This program offers five $10,000 awards to support a cohort of UCLA ladder faculty to advance their community-engaged research and integrate undergraduates by teaching an undergraduate community-engaged research course.
Community-engaged research, in this context, encompasses research and creative work across all fields that address an agenda of social justice and create reciprocal value with community partners. At its best, community-engaged research both achieves high levels of scholarly recognition within a field and advances efforts to redress social inequalities.
Eligibility: All UCLA ladder faculty
The Program: Community-Engaged Scholars will participate in the following activities during 2021-22:
- A one-day workshop on best practices for teaching undergraduate community-engaged research (to be scheduled in September 2021)
- A once-per-quarter meeting of the Community-Engaged Scholars cohort to advance their work on undergraduate community-engaged research course design, culminating in presentation of a new syllabus by Spring Quarter 2022.
The Scholars will then work with their department chair to schedule this new undergraduate course during AY 2022-23 or 2023-24.
Each Community-Engaged Scholar will receive an award of $10,000 to be transferred to the awardee’s research fund.
